Cardiomyopathies are a heterogeneous group of cardiac diseases that are either ischemic or nonischemic. Nonischemic myocardial disease includes but is not limited to dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, to name a few. Some etiologies are chronic, whereas others may be transient, such as viral-induced DCMs or the so-called ballooning syndromes (eg, apical ballooning cardiomyopathy). In this chapter, we introduce and describe the most commonly encountered nonischemic cardiomyopathies and their associated MRI characteristics.
