Clinical characteristics, cardiac morphology, function parameters and myocardial tissue characterization on MRI of three groups (FM, AM and CM) were retrospectively compared to find that higher myocardial thickness and T2 ratio were seen in FM than in AM and CM with statistical significance; the LVEF and incidence of LGE in FM were higher than that in CM with statistical significance. So that CMR has values in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of FM.
