In brief: Echo or exam

In italy, all athletes are screened with echocardiograms which is an excellent test for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
In the United States, athletes are screened with physical examination. Some patients, but not all patients, will have a typical murmur suggestive of this disorder.

In brief: HOCM

A full medical history, physical examination, and echocardiogram would be the first steps.
