Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is diagnosed on the basis of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy for which there is insufficient explanation (e.g. mild hypertension or mild aortic stenosis with marked hypertrophy). Echocardiography is an invaluable tool in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with HCM. Echocardiographic assessment requires a comprehensive assessment in several imaging planes with careful attention to correct beam alignment in order to minimize errors in the measurement of LV wall thickness and appropriate identification of hypertrophy with an unusual distribution.
