A recent paper published in Nature Reviews Cardiology shows how new advances in Cardiac MRI and biomarkers identified through blood testing may help to identify subclinical HCM before overt signs are evident.
This information could be used to intervene before patients ever develop overt signs of disease. Newer medications or experimental gene therapies have the potential to prevent the condition from ever developing.
These modalities would be useful when screening relatives of HCM patients and/or in people known to carry a gene for HCM.
