Atul Kapoor, Harinderpal Singh, Aprajita Kapoor, Goldaa Mahajan.

Abstract
Cardiac MR(CMR) has an important role in the evaluation of patients of suspected cardiomyopathies and also helps to
differentiate between the various types based on the type of late gadolinium enhancements(LGE’s). We describe a characteristic
Swiss cheese myocardium appearance in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) using automatic
scar analysis algorithm using low < 2SD scale threshold weighting to assess the replacement and interstitial fibrosis
along with T1 mapping to quantify it.

Key words: Cardiac MRI, Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Extracellular volume.
