Identification and typing of cardiac amyloidosis by non-invasive imaging: ​ Two cases for two patterns

Appropriate utilization of the different available imaging techniques in the evaluation of patients with known or suspected cardiac amyloidosis is mandatory.

Two cases with cardiac amyloidosis of different etiology and with distinct imaging patterns. In the first case, the negative 99mTc-diphosphonate imaging was useful to support the diagnosis of cardiac amyloid light-chain; the second case emphasized the utility of whole-body scintigraphy in recognizing transthyretin-related cardiac amyloidosis and the potential role of cadmium zinc-Telluride SPECT imaging for the evaluation of segmental distribution of cardiac disease.

Both cases support the growing interest in looking for noninvasive methods to type cardiac amyloidosis in the place of invasive myocardial biopsy highlighting both possibilities and limitations of available imaging techniques in diagnosis and treatment monitoring.
