A 58-year-old man was referred to our emergency room with hemodynamically unstable sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT). The morphology of the VT exhibited a left bundle branch block and inferior axis deviation. He had no past history of cardiovascular disease. Echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, cardiac biopsy, gallium scintigram, myocardial scintigram, T1,T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and gadolinium-enhanced cine MRI did not detect any structural heart disease or abnormal cardiac function...

BACKGROUND: The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare guidelines (JMHWG) are currently the standard used to diagnose cardiac sarcoidosis. JMHWG incorporate (67)Gallium scintigraphy as a minor criterion, while fasting (18)fluorine-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) PET is not included. As there is no published data comparing the accuracy of prolonged fasting FDG PET-CT (PF-PET) and Gallium scintigraphy for detecting active cardiac sarcoidosis, we sought to compare these two modalities...

Pulmonary involvement in mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is common, frequently severe, and is often clinically inapparent and variably responsive to corticosteroid/cyclophosphamide treatment. Serial pulmonary evaluation of patients with MCTD is important, since deterioration, as in the diffusing capacity over time, may alert the physician to the need for more invasive evaluation. Patients with a greater degree of overlap in rheumatological symptoms with an element of systemic sclerosis (PSS) may later develop severe disease...

Radionuclide techniques are easily obtainable, noninvasive examinations that provide useful information in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. The gated blood pool scan allows the assessment of ventricular size, configuration, and wall and septal thickness. These data allow the functional class of the cardiomyopathy (congestive, restrictive or hypertrophic) to be defined. Often Thallium-201 myocardial perfusion imaging adds further information and is particularly useful in distinguishing congestive cardiomyopathy from severe coronary artery disease and in depicting septal abnormalities in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy...
