Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause that can affect the
heart. Cardiac sarcoidosis may be present in as many as 25% of patients with systemic sarcoidosis, and
it is frequently underdiagnosed. The early and accurate diagnosis of myocardial involvement is challenging.
Advanced imaging techniques play important roles in the diagnosis and management of patients
with cardiac sarcoidosis.
