Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a relatively common hereditary disorder, which is associated with cardiac morphologic and functional alterations. Echocardiography is a non-invasive, simple and easy-to-learn method to evaluate patients with cardiomyopathy. The aim of this review paper is to demonstrate the possible diagnostic role of one of the newest echocardiographic development, the real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography in the evaluation of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
