Given its epidemiology, cardiac amyloidosis has become a diagnostic challenge of the twenty-first century. Cardiac resonance has become a fundamental diagnostic and prognostic tool in daily clinical practice. In this review article we summarize the knowledge, first addressing the technique itself, from general to specific protocols for its diagnosis. Subsequently, and taking this tool we systematize the diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic utility, based on the most recent practicality and scientific evidence, granting the possibility of using and addressing from a correct diagnostic imaging different aspect of this prevalent disease.

Keywords : Amyloidosis; Cardiac magnetic resonance.
