Acute myocarditis is a disease affecting the myocardial tissue, which is caused by infections, rheumatic diseases, especially sarcoidosis, or certain therapies. Its diagnosis may be difficult, owing to its variable clinical presentation. In this setting, cardiac magnetic resonance plays a pivotal role in detecting myocardial inflammation through qualitative, semiquantitative, and quantitative parameters, in particular with the new quantitative techniques such as T1 and T2 mapping, combined or not with late gadolinium enhancement evaluation. This is in accordance with the revised Lake Louise criteria. In this review, the emerging role of the new cutting-edge cardiac magnetic resonance imaging techniques in diagnosing myocarditis is extensively presented.

Abstract

Acute myocarditis is a disease affecting the myocardial tissue, which is caused by infections, rheumatic diseases, especially sarcoidosis, or certain therapies. Its diagnosis may be difficult, owing to its variable clinical presentation. In this setting, cardiac magnetic resonance plays a pivotal role in detecting myocardial inflammation through qualitative, semiquantitative, and quantitative parameters, in particular with the new quantitative techniques such as T1 and T2 mapping, combined or not with late gadolinium enhancement evaluation. This is in accordance with the revised Lake Louise criteria. In this review, the emerging role of the new cutting-edge cardiac magnetic resonance imaging techniques in diagnosing myocarditis is extensively presented.
