Imaging for the Diagnosis and Management of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy


Presenters: Theodore Abraham, MD; Ethan Rowin, MD
Moderator: James E. Udelson, MD, FAHA

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common form of genetic heart disease and can affect people of any age, yet it often goes undiagnosed. Diagnosis is typically done by echocardiogram to assess the thickness of the heart muscle and observe blood flow in and out of the heart.

Viewers will learn about the role of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with HCM.
