Cardiac amyloidosis (CA) is recognized as a common cause of restrictive cardiomyopathy and heart failure due to the deposition of insoluble proteins in the myocardial interstitium. We emphasize the role of [18F]-sodium fluoride (NaF) PET/CT as a potential noninvasive tool to identify and differentiate the transthyretin-related cardiac amyloidosis from the light-chain cardiac amyloidosis. We report cases of a 73-year-old man and a 75-year-old woman followed in our center for congestive heart… CONTINUE READING
