Brief Answer:
MRI scan gives more accurate results.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query with diligence. MRI scan taken with 3 tesla machines will be more accurate. CT wont catch up all things.
I need some more informations.
What other symptoms he is having?
What is his range of blood pressure and cholesterol levels?
If possible send you CT reports and pictures?

I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
