The utility of delayed-enhancement and t2-weighted cardiovascular mri for predicting clinical outcomes in patients at high risk for cardiac sarcoidosis

Abstract

Methods Patients referred for cardiac MRI (CMR) from 01/01/ 2003 to 12/31/2009 in our institution, and who had biopsy proven sarcoidosis without concomitant coronary artery disease, were included. Patients were classified as presenting with a major rhythmic disturbance (MRD) if the referral for cardiac MRI was prompted by high grade atrio-ventricular block, sustained ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. Mean duration of follow up after MRI was 20.7 +13.8 months.
