Context: The diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis, and the differentiation between active and quiescent disease are clinical challenges.

Methods and Results: To explore the diagnostic utility of hybrid (simultaneous) magnetic resonance (CMR) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for active cardiac sarcoidosis (aCS), the authors prospectively enrolled 25 patients with clinical suspicion of aCS. All patients underwent hybrid CMR/PET with late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) and FDG to assess the pattern of...
