Hypertensive heart disease (HHD) describes a spectrum of target organ response that includes left ventricular hypertrophy, systolic, and diastolic dysfunction. A variety of imaging techniques can be used to assess the various aspects of HHD. Echocardiography has for many years been the main imaging technique in the evaluation of HHD, but there is an increasing role for cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging due to its ability to provide an unrestricted field of view and noninvasive tissue characterization. This article reviews the current role of imaging for HHD with particular focus on echocardiography and CMR applications.
