The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between ventricular function and the extracellular volume fraction (ECV) in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM) using 3.0 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We also hypothesized that native T1 and ECV values would be increased in patients with NIDCM, independent of the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). The findings of our study could lead to further studies of the follow-up protocols.
