Amyloid and collagenous fiber deposition was correlated with late enhancement that was shown to be associated with fibrosis due to ischemia of cardiomyocytes by small vessel amyloid deposition [118]. 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].
