Cardiovascular magnetic resonance(CMR) imaging is now accepted as a valuable tool for the evaluation of many cardiac disease. It is particularly useful for the assessment of cardiomyopathies because it can depict different myocardial enhancement patterns on inversion-recovery(IR) late gadolinium-enhanced(LGE) images. This study would like to compare breath-holding SPGR PSIR with free-breathing FIESTA PSIR sequences and evaluate the feasibility of FIESTA for the assessment of LGE in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
