Pheochromocytoma is associated with catecholamine-induced cardiac toxicity, but the extent and nature of cardiac involvement in clinical cohorts is not well-characterized.
This study characterized the cardiac phenotype in patients with pheochromocytoma using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR).
A total of 125 subjects were studied, including patients with newly diagnosed pheochromocytoma (n = 29), patients with previously surgically cured pheochromocytoma (n = 31), healthy control subjects (n = 51), and hypertensive control subjects (HTN) (n = 14), using CMR (1.

The goal of this study was to assess the diffuse myocardial fibrosis and edema in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using multiparametric cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and the association of myocardial T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) with disease activity, duration, and cardiac function.
RA is a connective tissue disorder, with frequent cardiovascular disease. Myocardial inflammation and diffuse fibrosis can be detected noninvasively by using native T1 mapping and ECV quantification on CMR.

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is characterised by multi-organ tissue fibrosis including the myocardium. Diffuse myocardial fibrosis can be detected non-invasively by T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) quantification, while focal myocardial inflammation and fibrosis may be detected by T2-weighted and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), respectively, using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). We hypothesised that multiparametric CMR can detect subclinical myocardial involvement in patients with SSc.

Aim of the present study was to investigate the relations between myocardial mechanics and the extent of hypertrophy and fibrosis in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Forty-five consecutive patients with HCM and 15 subjects without structural heart disease were included. Cardiac magnetic resonance with late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging was performed to evaluate biventricular function, LV mass index and presence/extent of LGE, expression of replacement fibrosis.

The goal of this study was to assess the relationship among extracellular volume (ECV), native T1, and systolic strain in hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (HTN LVH), hypertensive patients without LVH (HTN non-LVH), and normotensive controls.
Diffuse myocardial fibrosis in HTN LVH patients, as reflected by increased ECV and native T1, may be an underlying mechanism contributing to increased cardiovascular risk compared with HTN non-LVH subjects and controls. Furthermore, increased diffuse fibrosis in HTN LVH subjects may be associated with reduced peak systolic and early diastolic strain rate compared with the other 2 groups.
