Distinguishing focal fibrotic lesions and non-fibrotic lesions in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy by assessment of regional myocardial strain using two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography: Comparison with multislice CT
International Journal of Cardiology, 07/27/2012
Yajima R et al. – In HCM, regional peak–LS was significantly lower in fibrotic than non–fibrotic lesions in LVM by CT. Regional peak–LS by speckle–tracking provides useful information noninvasively to distinguish fibrotic from non–fibrotic lesions in LVM in HCM and normal LVM in healthy controls.
