This booklet describes the position of easy and complex imaging recommendations within the prognosis of alternative sorts of cardiomyopathy, together with dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic correct ventricular cardiomyopathy and infiltrative/storage cardiomyopathies. whereas the main target is on echocardiography, the functions of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography also are defined. all through, a clinically orientated method is hired: designated cognizance is paid to differential prognosis and diverse top of the range photographs depict the most positive aspects of a few of the forms of cardiomyopathy. attention is usually given to the genetics of cardiomyopathies, with research of genotype-phenotype relationships. eventually, the aptitude price of imaging in prognostic review and in guiding therapy is described.

Another important factor that influences the better prognosis in DCM is evidencebased optimal medical treatment: many clinical trials demonstrated the beneficial role of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (Enalapril) and betablockers (metoprolol, carvedilol, and bisoprolol) [8–11]. Also, nonpharmacological treatments, such as implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) with a biventricular pacemaker impact favorably on DCM prognosis [12, 13].
