    Left ventricular hypertrophy due to athlete???s heart and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) can be difficult to distinguish clinically and can affect both ventricles. Cine phase contrast velocity magnetic resonance imaging (tissue phase mapping; TPM) allows comprehensive assessment of myocardial velocities. Magnetic resonance imaging is superior to echocardiography in the assessment of right ventricular volumes and mass and may also be a powerful tool to assess right ventricular tissue velocities. We hypothesised that myocardial velocities would be altered in the left ventricle and also in the right ventricle in HCM, but not in athlete???s heart.
