The diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE) is established on the modified Duke’s criteria, including clinical presentation, laboratory findings and results of imaging modalities including echocardiography (1). Echocardiography is generally recommended as the first-line diagnostic imaging method and shows high diagnostic performance. Echocardiography, however, has several limitations in differentiating vegetation from thrombus or cardiac tumors, in cases of early stage IE and small vegetation… CONTINUE READING
