This 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.
