Abstract

16-slice multidetector CT (MDCT) cardiac findings of a middle-aged man with known apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (AHC) and recent atypical chest pain are presented. MDCT enabled comprehensive evaluation of the coronary arteries, diagnosing myocardial bridging of the left anterior descending (LAD) and first diagonal arteries. It also enabled dynamic evaluation of myocardial thickness and left ventricular global and regional function. This case illustrates the full capabilities of MDCT in the evaluation of AHC.
