Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a fascinating and complex disorder with substantial variability in phenotypic expression and natural progression. Recently, there has been substantial research demonstrating incremental utility of cardiac magnetic resonance in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. With the increasing utilization of multimodality imaging, our understanding of the subtle morphologic differences and their prognostic implications is only going to improve.
