Role of Cardiac MR (CMR) In Detecting Features of Early Myocardial Infiltration With Amyloid and Light Chain Deposition Disease in Subjects With Multiple Myeloma


The purpose is to investigate the use of multiple newer CMR techniques for early evaluation
of cardiac amyloidosis in multiple myeloma.
