OBJECTIVES This study sought to relate imaging findings on positron emission tomography (PET) to adverse cardiac events in patients referred for evaluation of known or suspected cardiac sarcoidosis. BACKGROUND Although cardiac PET is commonly used to evaluate patients with suspected cardiac sarcoidosis, the relationship between PET findings and clinical outcomes has not been reported. METHODS We studied 118 consecutive patients with no history of coronary artery disease, who were referred… CONTINUE READING
