Can one with a form of cardiomyopathy have a entirely normal ecg?

Lots of ecgs can be deemed normal but still have slight abnormalities.
But if the ecg is entirely normal, no st changes, no t wave changes, no brady or tachycardia, and no p segment changes then is it possible someone could have a disease in which leads to the enlargement of the heart?
