OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the diagnostic accuracy and incremental prognostic value of delayed hyper-enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance (DHE-CMR) compared with electrocardiographic and transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) parameters in such patients. BACKGROUND Utility of DHE-CMR in the diagnosis of patients with suspected cardiac amyloidosis(More)
