abstract

  • Established cardiac magnetic resonance methods yield differences in left ventricular quantification due to variable exclusion of papillary muscles and trabeculae from myocardium. The relative impact of papillary muscles and trabeculae exclusion on calculated mass and ejection fraction is increased among patients with hypertrophy-associated left ventricular remodeling.
