Abstract Background The uptake of bone-seeking radiotracers in the amyloid heart is well recognised. Tc-99m-DPD has been shown to be highly sensitive for cardiac transthyretin (ATTR) amyloid in an overseas population, but is not registered for use in Australia. We explored its utility as a diagnostic tool within our population.
