18F-flurodeoxyglycose (FDG)/13N-ammonia positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is frequently utilized to evaluate cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) but findings can reflect other forms of myocardial inflammation or altered myocardial metabolic activity. Herein, we present five cases where cardiac PET findings suggested CS, but right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy samples revealed ATTR-type cardiac amyloidosis.
