Figure 4. A 2D echocardiogram showed severely reduced left ventricle (LV) function and prominent trabeculations consistent with left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC), and cardiac MRI revealed severely reduced LV function with focal LVNC. (A, B) 2D echocardiogram showing (A) end-diastolic apical 4-chamber view, and (B) a short axis view demonstrating reduced LV function and prominent apical trabeculations. (C) In the end-diastolic frame of the cardiac MRI, the ratio of noncompacted myocardium (NCM) to compacted myocardium (CM) was greater than 2.3 at the apex, consistent with LVNC.
