In patients with endomyocardial biopsy-proven cardiac amyloidosis, late gadolinium enhancement shows good sensitivity (80%) and excellent specificity (94%) [119], being strongly correlated with heart failure severity as assessed by brain natriuretic peptide [120]. Magnetic resonance relaxometry, measuring T1 and T2 relaxation times of the left ventricular myocardium, might improve the diagnostic reliability of this technique [121], and tissue characterization of the myocardium by T1 quantification predicts survival [122].

Palladini et al. Scintigraphy with 99m Tc-Labeled Phosphate Derivatives Radiolabeled phosphate derivates were developed as bone tracers and they are believed to localize to amyloid deposits because of their relevant calcium content. In 1977 Kula et al. visualized calcifications in amyloid deposits with 99m Tcdiphosphonate [27]. Since then, several phosphate derivatives have been tested in cardiac amyloidosis, including 99m Tc-pyrophosphate (99m Tc-PYP) [27–32], 99m Tc(hydroxy)methylene diphosphonate (99m Tc-MDP or 99m Tc-HMDP) [33], and 99m Tc3,3-diphosphono-1,2-propanodicarboxylic acid (99m Tc-DPD) [34, 35].
