Abstract

This study was designed to assess the role of magnetic resonance imaging in the differential diagnosis of amyloid and idiopathic etiology of cardiomyopathy. This technique demonstrated the capability to differentiate the 2 forms, providing high-resolution evaluation of the myocardial wall and detecting the infiltrative pathology by tissue characterization.
