Background and purpose: Subendocardial fibrosis is recognized finding in left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC); however, the evidence regarding the patterns and the frequency of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) is controversial. The present study sought to assess the frequency and patterns of LGE in LVNC.
