Abstract

Ultrasonic tissue characterization using CV-IB separately in the right and left halves of the ventricular septum, but not late gadolinium enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging, provided useful information in detecting subendocardial ischaemia in patients with HCM. Ultrasonic tissue characterization may be useful in selecting patients who will benefit from medications to relieve chest symptoms.
