Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the leading cause of sudden death in young athletes. Joining host Dr. Michael Greenberg to discuss HCM is Dr. Martin Maron, director of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center and co-director of cardiac MRI and CT at Tufts Medical Center. As an imaging specialist, Dr. Maron utilizes cardiac MRI and cardiac CT for the evaluation and treatment of patients. Discussing all aspects of HCM, Dr. Maron and Dr. Greenberg address this most common of all genetic cardiac diseases (occurring in 1/500 individuals), invasive and non-invasive treatment, and implications for HCM patients involved in sports.
