study aimed at demonstrate the influence of gender difference on T2DM related
LV structural, functional, as well as interstitial remodeling. Short-axis cine
imaging and pre- and post-contrast T1 mappings were analyzed in 62 T2DM
patients and 40 healthy controls. Significant LV concentric remodeling was noted
in female T2DM population while male patients exhibited extracellular matrix
remodeling and diastolic dysfunction.
