Abstract

OBJECTIVE. This article will present correlation of the key radiologic findings with gross and microscopic pathology for the characterization of diffuse myocardial diseases using advanced imaging techniques. Our goal is to provide a focused and in-depth review of the pathophysiology underlying each entity and to emphasize the structural basis for the corresponding imaging characteristics. This article is limited to those disorders characterized by ventricular wall thickening without chamber dilatation, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, hypertensive cardiomyopathy, and cardiac amyloidosis. CONCLUSION. For the characterization of diffuse myocardial diseases using advanced imaging techniques, it is essential to understand the underlying pathologic changes in the heart. With these techniques, such as cardiac MRI, the various cardiomyopathies can be differentiated accurately, which may potentially obviate invasive testing and endomyocardial biopsy.
