The aim of this study was to evaluate complete segmental left ventricular performance in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy due to hypertension compared to healthy volunteers. Using MRI Tissue Phase Mapping (TPM) we could demonstrate extensive alterations in magnitude, timing and distribution of diastolic myocardial velocities within the left ventricle in the patients.
