ABSTRACT: An 82-year-old man with suspected systemic amyloidosis and complete atrioventricular block underwent vascular biopsy during his pacemaker implantation with pathology showing amyloid deposits. Tc-aprotinin SPECT revealed increased radiotracer uptake along the left ventricular wall, consistent with cardiac amyloidosis. C-PiB PET/CT performed for the evaluation of amyloid deposits in the brain showed findings suggestive of Alzheimer disease without abnormal radiotracer concentration in the myocardium to match the Tc-aprotinin SPECT findings. Dynamic PET images showed increased C-PiB concentration in the left ventricular myocardium at 2 minutes after injection, with subsequent tracer clearance by approximately 5 minutes, consistent with normal C-PiB biodistribution.
