Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this module, learner will be able to: 

  • Describe cardiac amyloidosis subtypes and identify symptoms, associated clinical conditions, and typical non-nuclear imaging features.
  • Identify appropriate clinical scenarios for the use of Tc99m-PYP/DPD/HMDP imaging in cardiac amyloidosis.
  • Apply appropriate Tc99m-PYP/DPD/HMDP, I123-MIBG, and SPECT/PET amyloid binding tracer standardized imaging techniques to optimize assessment of cardiac amyloidosis.
  • Interpret and communicate diagnostic and prognostic findings on Tc99m-PYP/DPD/HMDP, I123-MIBG, and SPECT/PET amyloid binding tracers in the assessment of cardiac amyloidosis.

ASNC Issues Statement on How to Use HMDP in Cardiac Amyloidosis Imaging

Shortages of pyrophosphate (PYP), the radiopharmaceutical most commonly used in the U.S. for noninvasive diagnosis of transthyretin (ATTR) cardiac amyloidosis, should not delay imaging in at-risk patients. Instead, ASNC is guiding imagers to use 99mtechnetium (99mTc)-hydroxymethylene diphosphonate (HMDP or HDP) to ensure patients continue receiving prompt evaluation of, and treatment for, cardiac amyloidosis.
