Example text

Additionally, since myocardial granulomas tend to affect the basal and lateral left ventricular walls, these are often not biopsied due to the potential risk for serious complication such as stroke, perforation, embolus, or death (see a more in depth discussion of endomyocardial biopsy in Chap. 8). Putting It All Together As you have seen in this chapter, establishing the diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis by commonly available modalities is challenging. As the proliferation of advanced imaging studies such as cardiac MRI and cardiac 18-FDG-PET are still not widely available, making use of all available screening tools is essential.

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) employs delayed hyperenhancement (DHE) sequences for the detection of bright (high signal intensity) scar in the myocardium as well as T2 imaging for inflammation and cinematic movie imaging for anatomic and functional evaluation.
