Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) findings suggesting a suspected left-dominant arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (LDAC) may be difficult to distinguish from those related to previous myocarditis; however, especially in patients with ventricular arrhythmias (VA) with ECG morphology consistent with a left ventricle (LV) origin differential diagnosis is fundamental. Aim of the study was to identify potential imaging features at CMR specific for LDAC diagnosis.
