The European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) have released a joint position statement on the recommendations for the indication and interpretation of cardiovascular imaging in the evaluation of the athlete's heart. The goal was “to properly address the determinants of cardiac remodelling, indications for imaging and clues for differential diagnosis with cardiac pathology.” They also address a “number of pathologic conditions that are relevant to the cardiovascular evaluation of the athletes (and were not included in previous document), such as left-ventricular non-compaction, myocarditis, mitral valve prolapse, and bicuspid aortic valve”.
