What is the definite diagnosis ratio for LNVC? I had an MRI done and was told mine was 2:1 NC to C and everything I’ve read says a diagnosis is greater than 2.3:1 ratio. Does anyone know and does that ratio if true mean I don’t have it?

Hi James, I moved your message and question about left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) to this previous discussion of the same name. I did this so that you can connect with @charlottegrace and read the excellent information provided by Kanaaz. Please scroll through the past posts.

Since LNVC is a genetic cardiomyopathy, I'm wondering if you've investigated genetic testing to determine the diagnosis? Do other family members have a history of heart issues?

My ratio has improved from 5.0 to 2.76 in a span of 2 years. I have read articles that suggest a ration above 2 is the standard criteria but it’s still being researched and studied so they treat every case as important. I believe that a decrease in ratio is much better when it comes to an overall prognosis however, it does mean you still have trabeculations.

What’s more important are your symptoms, do you have any?
