Non-ischemic Cardiomyopathies

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) - 80% demonstrate LGE, often involving the regions of hypertrophy, junctions of the interventricular septum and the RV free wall


Anderson-Fabry - LGE of the inferolateral wall at the basal level


Amyloidosis - global hypertrophy, often involving the right ventricle, thickening of the interatrial septum and of the atrial walls, diffuse subendocardial LV hyperenhancement
