A Practical Approach to the Diagnosis of Unexplained LVH: Insights into Infiltrative Cardiomyopathies

This program supports cardiologists in going through a differential diagnosis of patients with left ventricular hypertrophy. Using a case study to illustrate a patient journey, the program will review recommended cardiac imaging and how to use the imaging results to establish a diagnosis.

Examples of ECG and ECHO findings, in addition to disease-specific testing, will be used to increase cardiologists’ confidence in analyzing test results and moving patients towards a diagnosis.


Upon completion of this continuing education program, participants will be better able to:

  • Develop a diagnostic approach to patients who present with unexplained LVH

  • Discuss the key features of cardiac imaging tests that can help differentiate between cardiac pathologies

  • Implement the use disease-specific testing in patients with unexplained LVH
