Fat deposition has a high prevalence in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy(ARVC). The incidence was reported approximately 68% in ARVC. While it is unclear in dilated cardiomyopathy. In this study, we use the latest water fat separation sequence to evaluate fat deposition in dilated cardiomyopathy(DCM) and found that fat deposition is quite common in DCM and it is associated with DCM characteristics including fibrosis volume and left ventricular function.
