Emphasis must be given to the fact that CMR can determine the pattern of LVH and provide an answer regarding its cause [39]. Moreover, focal myocardial fibrosis encountered in hypertensive heart disease can be visualized by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) CMR, while other sequences are being tested in order to detect diffuse myocardial fibrosis [39]. • CMRI has also been proposed as the gold standard for the measurement of LA volume although 3D echocardiography seems to gain ground [44, 45]. In addition, references regarding left atrial dimensions and volumes have been published [46].

4 3D Speckle Tracking Technological advancement of real-time 3D echocardiography has developed software that tracks the motion of speckles irrespective of their direction and allows to obtain a homogeneous spatial distribution of all three components of the myocardial displacement vector [17]. The main advantage of 3D speckle tracking echocardiography is the possibility of analysing the whole left ventricle from a single volume of data obtained from the apical transducer position. In addition, its use considerably reduces the time duration of analysis to one-third in comparison with 2D speckle tracking echocardiography [18].
