Methods and Materials
We retrospectively enrolled 15 patients adult patients (11 males and 4 females; mean age,
42 ± 13 years) considered to meet standard CMR criteria for LVNC.
For each patient,
cine and contrast-enhanced CMR images were analyzed to evaluate LV systolic function and the prevalence and extent of LGE.
The presence or absence of LGE was qualitatively determined for each left ventricular myocardial segment. The ratio of non-compacted to compacted (NC/C) myocardium was measured for each involved myocardial segment in diastole,
on short axis slices,
and the maximum ratio was then used for analysis.
