Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited cardiomyopathy and the most common cause of cardiac death in young athletes in the U.S. Noninvasive imaging plays an important role in detecting the disease, understanding its pathophysiology, and selecting as well as guiding appropriate therapy. In this review, we discuss the existing methodology with emphasis on current and emerging clinical applications in patients with HCM.
