Abstract

Imaging to diagnose ARVC/D is of paramount importance. TFC utilizes CMR and Echo in order to diagnose ARVC/D. There are modalities which are not included in the TFC but have high sensitivity and/or specificity in detecting and diagnosing ARVC/D. Electroanatomic voltage mapping may help in the management of ventricular arrhythmias ARVC/D. Cardiac CTA provides a wide spectrum of diagnostic information, including anatomy, size, global and regional function, and the presence of fibrofatty changes in the LV and the RV free wall. Exercise testing, nuclear imaging and the use of MRI-based strain sequences may reveal early subclinical disease. While the published data appears promising with regard to these modalities, for the diagnosis of ARVC/D, further studies are required to prove the value of these methodologies for the diagnosis of ARVC/D.
