No study has explored the relationship between CMR-derived myocardial strain and the extent of LGE in asymptomatic HT patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate this relationship using DRA and FT strain analysis. In this study, there were strong correlation and good reproducibility between DRA and FT strain modalities. HT patients with LGE had reduced LVGLS and preserved LVGCS. CMR-derived LVGLS was significantly and independently correlated with LGE.
