JCMR 2020;22:62. Prevalence and pattern of myocardial late enhancement in cardiac magnetic resonance of highly trained endurance athlete (CME)

Purpose/ Objective

This CME activity was designed to understand the characterization of the features of contrast CMR and the observed patterns of the LGE distribution in a cohort of highly trained endurance athletes.

The article discusses how intensive endurance exercise may induce a broad spectrum of right ventricular remodelling patterns. The aim of this work is to characterize the features of contrast CMR (patterns of late gadolinium enhancement distribution and T1 and extracellular volume values) in a cohort of highly trained endurance athletes. Late gadolinium enhancement has also been described in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) of some endurance athletes and its clinical meaning remains controversial. Our aim was to characterize the features of contrast CMR and the observed patterns of the LGE distribution in a cohort of highly trained endurance athletes.

To close the gap:

  1. Learners need to know about cardiac remodelling caused by intensive endurance exercise.
  2. Learners need to know how to apply (intention to put into practice) LGE and T1 mapping CMR sequences.
  3. Learners need to do (perform): CMR in highly-trained athletes to study if they are developing fibrosis.
