The April edition of the European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging includes the full details of the NORRE study.
35-year-old male for routine HOCM follow-up.
This case demonstrates nicely all the routine findings in a typical HOCM study.
An early AM call in. This 44-year-old man presented to ED with chest pain. His ECG was normal apart from sinus tachycardia.
Pericarditis was the question on the ticket. After assessing the subcostal view and ruling out pericardial effusion a standard image acquisition followed.
A 40-year-old caucasian male presented to ED with palpitations and shortness of breath. His ECG showed giant inverted T waves across precordial leads. He was admitted to the CCU, where we performed a TTE which showed this typical presentation of an atypical form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
This patient presented to our lab for a follow-up TTE following a recent CVA. She had a LAA occluder device in situ for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation as she was avert to warfarin.
A 50-year-old male was admitted with worsening symptoms of his pulmonary fibrosis. The attending renal physician suspected right heart failure. The right ventricle was found to be of normal dimension with normal systolic function.
The incidental finding was of moderate left ventricular hypertrophy with a fixed restrictive diastolic profile. The myocardium appeared speckled on 2D assessment. Ejection fraction was estimated at 40%.
