To evaluate the subclinical cardiac involvement in COVID-19 patients without clinical cardiac evidence using cardiac MR imaging. Participants recovered from COVID-19 without cardiac symptoms and no cardiovascular medical history were enrolled in a prospective cohort study. They underwent baseline cardiac MR and follow-up cardiac MR > 300 days after discharge (n = 20). The study also included healthy controls (n = 20). Extracellular volume fraction (ECV), native T1, and 2D strain data were assessed and compared. The ECV values of participants at baseline [30. 0% (28. 3%-32. 5%)] and at follow-up [31. 0% (28. 0%-32. 8%)] were increased compared to the healthy control group [27. 0% (25. 3%-28. 0%)] (both p
