Özet

Background: Left ventricular (LV) rotation, twist, and torsion are important aspects of the cardiac performance. Myocardial fibrosis can be identified as the late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). In this study, we investigated the association between myocardial fibrosis and LV rotational parameters in patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NDC).
