pet/ct scan


The investigators will evaluate the detection of cardiac sarcoidosis or inflammation using 18F-FSPG PET/MRI.


PET/MRI scans will be performed with a whole-body PET/MR imaging system capable of simultaneous PET and MR imaging (SIGNA, GE Healthcare, Milwaukee, WI). Approximately 45-60 minutes after IV injection of 8 mCi of 18F-FSPG, PET emission scanning and MRI acquisition T1 weighted scanning will begin imaging both whole body and the heart.
