Cardiac amyloidosis, a form of infiltrative cardiomyopathy, is associated with poor prognosis in untreated patients. Early diagnosis is important for timely initiation of effective therapies. Despite advances in diagnostic modalities, it remains a challenging diagnosis, requiring high index of clinical suspicion. Echocardiography represents the first-line cardiac imaging modality for evaluation of heart failure and suspected cardiac amyloidosis. In this review, we discuss echocardiographic findings in cardiac amyloidosis.
