1 doctor weighed in:

A recent CT scan showed dilated cardiomyopathy, but the doctor didn't mention it. Does the mention of it on the report mean that it's a diagnosis?

In brief: No

See your doctor of cardiologist.
A CT can show and enlarged heart, but that can be for multiple reasons. CT showing evidence of enlarged heart is not diagnostic of cardiomyopathy.
