I recently underwent a cardiac MRI due to persistent palpitations/PVCs. I received a call from a nurse regarding my results. She stated that there was a mild abnormality and that the doctor wants to order PET imaging. She explained that there was a small area of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE).
I was able to download the report, which states: "There is a small focus of mid wall late gadolinium enhancement at the basal to mid inferoseptal segment at the RV insertion site. There is no evidence of myocardial edema by T2 weighted imaging."
Later, in the conclusions section, the report states: "Normal bi-ventricular size and function. On the late gadolinium enhancement, there is a small amount of focal late gadolinium enhancement involving the basal to mid inferoseptal segments at the hardware insertion point. While this can be a non-specific finding, other differential diagnosis for this isolated finding include chronic myocarditis, or infiltrative cardiomyopathy, including cardiac sarcoidosis."
It seems clear that this finding could indicate a serious issue. My question is whether or not it could also indicate something less serious. I'm just not sure what a "non-specific finding" means and was hoping somebody could help explain that.
