Abstract

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is currently considered as the noninvasive modality of choice for evaluation of patients with suspected Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (i.e., right ventricular dysplasia). As arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D) it is included in the WHO classification of cardiomyopathies. It has the unique ability to provide tissue characterization in addition to providing functional information. This article presents the basic techniques for the evaluation of right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
