Cardiac metabolism is deranged in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Phosphorus-31 ( 31 P) and hydrogen-1 ( 1 H) magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) allow for the non-invasive assessment of various aspects of cardiac metabolism, showing deranged cardiac energetics and lipid accumulation in DCM. In the future, MRS may become an important biomarker tool for monitoring the effects of novel heart-failure treatments in DCM.
