  1. n = Number of patients; Group A = Patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and left ventricular apical thrombus; Group 2 = comprised of patients showing no thrombus; P value is significant if 0.05 or less using One-Way ANOVA test; CMRI = cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; ECHO = trans-thoracic echocardiography; Data are shown as mean ± standard deviation or number (%); EF = Ejection Fraction
