9) and eosinophilic heart disease causing endomyocardial ﬁbrosis. Cardiac sarcoid can also cause ﬁbrosis, visible by LGE, often with dense punchedout lesions. Myocardial oedema may be present on T2W images in association with active inﬂammation. 13). RV non-compaction accompanies LVNC in a signiﬁcant proportion of patients. Clinical manifestations include heart failure, ventricular arrhythmias and systemic embolic events. TTE and CMR are the imaging methods of choice with the criteria for diagnosis being a ratio of non-compacted to compacted myocardial layers of greater than 2.
Indications CMR can: 1. Determine LV and RV cardiac morphology and function normalized to sex, age and body surface area; 2. 13 (a) Four-chamber, (b) two-chamber and (c) mid-ventricular short-axis SSFP cine CMR images from a 68-year-old man with known LVNC highlighting the pathognomonic combination of multiple prominent ventricular trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses in communication with the ventricular cavity (black arrows). 3. 4. 5. 6. Detect myocardial oedema/iron/fat; Visualize myocardial ﬁbrosis and protein deposition; Differentiate between DCM and cardiac dilatation due to CAD; and Distinguish between the cardiomyopathies (assign the phenotype).
MVO occurs in the ﬁrst hours post-MI, predicts an unfavourable prognosis, and corresponds to areas of no-reﬂow. 4). 5). 4 Mid-ventricular short-axis view of an EGE study in an acute lateral MI showing a small dark zone of MVO embedded within the infarcted area (white arrow). 5 (a) Four- and (b) two-chamber views from a 74-year-old man who had a history of MI in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) territory. EGE shows an LV apical thrombus (black arrows) overlying a transmural chronic infarct.
