Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disorder of myocardium having a genetic basis, and high disease related mortality. Identification of areas of occult fibrosis along with overt fibrosis using T1 mapping will be useful in long term prognosis of patients along with other imaging parameters in MRI. This study was aimed at (a) determining the differences in native T1 values of controls and HCM patients, (b) to determine the relationship between early gadolinium enhancement (EGE)/Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE)/ perfusion abnormalities and native T1 and ECV values in patients of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
