Positron emission tomography (PET) utilizing Pittsburgh compound B (PIB) for detection of amyloid heart deposits in hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR)

Background DPD scintigraphy has been advocated for imaging cardiac amyloid in ATTR amyloidosis. PET utilizing 11C-Pittsburgh compound B (PIB) is the gold standard for imaging brain amyloid in Alzheimer’s disease. PIB was recently shown to identify cardiac amyloidosis in both AL and ATTR amyloidosis. In the ATTR population, two types of amyloid fibrils exist, one containing...

Prediction of 14-year cardiovascular outcomes by dobutamine stress 99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial perfusion SPECT in elderly patients unable to perform exercise testing

Background Dobutamine stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is a useful alternative for the evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) in elderly patients who are unable to perform an exercise stress test. However, data on the long-term prognostic value of stress MPI in elderly patients are lacking. Therefore, this study evaluated the long-term prognostic value of dobutamine...
