Mild Congestive Cardiomyopathy

 

MILD NON ISCHEMIC CONGESTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY
Axial MRI through mid ventricle using white blood imaging algorithm, in a 66 year old male with mild dyspnea, shows mild left ventricular (LV) enlargement (LVE) with an internal diameter of 5.3cms (normal 4.5cms) (top left), normal sized left atrium (LA) approximating the size of the normal aorta (Ao) with an ejection fraction of 43% and normal end diastolic volume (112 ccs) and normal LV mass (66gms/sq m)

SEPTAL, MID MYOCARDIUM, LGE
Short axis MRI in a 66 year old male with mild dyspnea, post gadolinium infusion through mid ventricle using white blood imaging algorithm, shows linear enhancement in the mid myocardium of the septum (white arrows in b) consistent with congestive cardiomyopathy. Myocarditis is included in the radiological differential diagnosis.

61 Male with Alcoholic Congestive Cardiomyopathy

ALCOHOLIC CONGESTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY
Axial CT through the 4 chambers shows isolated LV dilatation in early diastole with the cavity measuring 6.8cms.
CONGESTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY SYSTOLE AND DIASTOLE
MR in axial plane shows a dilated LV and normal sized LA, RA, and RV. EF was between 10% and 20%

CONGESTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY SHORT AXIS
61 male, alcoholic with congestive cardiomyopathy
MRI in short axis through the body of the LV in systole (above) and diastole (below)shows a dilated LV without much change in the dimensions of the LV cavity. EF was between 10% and 20%

SHORT AXIS LGE SEQUENCE- CONGESTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY
Short axis LGE sequence shows linear mid myocardial LGE in the ventricular septum
