Imaging of Systemic Light Chain Cardiac Amyloidosis and Whole-Body Amyloidosis


About this study

The objective of our study is to develop [11C]PIB PET as a new imaging biomarker for quantitative assessment of AL cardiac amyloidosis. The hypothesis is the degree of amyloid deposition in the myocardium and other organs in whole body could be detected and quantified by [11C]PIB PET imaging, which will diagnose cardiac amyloidosis early, differentiate AL cardiac amyloidosis from others, and monitor therapy response.
