Evaluation of [13N]- Ammonia- and [18F]-FDG-PET/cMRI for Cardiac Sarcoidosis

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the accuracy and clinical significance or benefit of using a combined [13N]- Ammonia- and [18F]-FDG-PET/cMRI for evaluation of cardiac sarcoidosis and to assess the biomarkers associated with the disease. Positron Emission Tomography, commonly referred to as PET involves the use of injected compounds known as radiotracers (like [13N]-Ammonia and [18F] FDG) to make images that give us information about conditions in your body. In contrast, Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI uses a magnet instead of radiation to visualize the inside of your body. Contrast (dye) is commonly injected to enhance the clarity of the images.
