Quantification of left ventricular mass by echocardiography compared to cardiac magnet resonance imaging in hemodialysis patients

Abstract Background Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), defined by the left ventricular mass index (LVMI), is highly prevalent in hemodialysis patients and a strong independent predictor of cardiovascular events. Compared to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), echocardiography tends to overest...
