Left Ventricular Non-compaction (LVNC) manifesting with
myocardial fibrosis can cause cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmia, and sudden death.
Native T1 mapping is an emerging CMR technique in quantitative evaluation of myocardial
fibrosis. This study aimes to investigate the usefulness of native T1 mapping
in characterization of myocardial abnormalities in LVNC patients by comparing
with late gadolinium enhancement. It may suggest that native T1 mapping may provide information for early
detection of fibrosis in compacted myocardium and stratification of severity in
Left Ventricular Non-compaction.
