Description

Definitions and illustrations of criteria used to categorize cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) likelihood based on cardiac magnetic resonance and positron emission tomographic (PET) findings. *Nonspecific F18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake includes the following: (1) focal FDG, which demonstrated homogenous signal intensity and only involved the lateral wall; (2) diffuse uptake of FDG by left ventricle; and (3) small area of FDG uptake that has signal intensity, which is only minimally increased when compared with background/blood pool. LGE indicates late gadolinium enhancement; and MRI, magnetic resonance imaging.
