Abstract

We present a case that demonstrates myocardial fibrosis detected on a cardiac computed tomography study performed for the evaluation of chest pain in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We describe the correlation between echocardiographic strain imaging, quantitative positron emission tomography, and computed tomographic evidence of fibrosis and its implications in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
