Regular exercise can have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system, but more and more reports of sudden cardiac deaths in athletes and general people during exercise had made people gradually pay attention to the damage effect of exercise on the heart.There is currently lack of imaging examination methods for early and accurate judgment of athletes’ myocardial injury.This study intended to use intravoxel incoherent motion diffusion-weighted imaging to evaluate the myocardial microcirculation of athletes to early predict the incidence of adverse cardiac events such as cardiac remodeling and delayed enhancement of the myocardium.
