Abstract

Cardiac amyloidosis is a rare disease that frequently presents as ventricular hypertrophy. However, diagnosis is not always easy or straightforward as there are several myocardial disorders that phenocopy cardiac amyloidosis. Here, we present a narrative review of the current modalities that are actively used or being developed for diagnosis and follow-up of cardiac amyloidosis. Although not all of the findings may be present in those with cardiac amyloidosis, there are some clues in each diagnostic step that help lead to confirmatory diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis; we believe that cardiologists should be familiar with these clues.
