LV Non-Compaction

Female, 61 y.
Non-compacted myocardium is seen in the LV apex (upper 4 slices). LV systolic function is normal. Left column: 3 apical orthogonal views. The 9 short axis views on the right cut through the LV cavity from mid-cavity (yellow horizontal dotted line on the apical views) to the apex (white dotted line) starting from the lower right slice up to the upper left slice. Typical muscular indentations are seen near the apex (lateral to inferior wall), whereas the apex is obliterated by the non-compacted myocardium.
