Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is the assess the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance imaging in patients with suspected myocarditis by applying different imaging sequences at different MR scanners

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Myocarditis Other: Endomyocardial Biopsy

Detailed Description:

In patients with clinical suspicion of myocarditis biventricular endomyocardial biopsy is performed for definite diagnosis. In addition, patients undergo magnetic resonance imaging at 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla within 24 hours. The imaging protocol of both scan include assessment of myocardial edema respectively edema ratio; myocardial hyperemia respectively global relative enhancement (gRE); myocardial fibrosis/necrosis respectively myocardial LE and T1 and T2 mapping sentences. Diagnostic performance of different imaging protocols as compared to the findings of endomyocardial biopsies is calculated.

The protocol also includes a follow-up MR can at 3 months.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Magnetic resonance imaging and endomyocardial biopsy
Magnetic resonance imaging and endomyocardial biopsy
Other: Endomyocardial Biopsy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accuracy, sensitivity and specificity of magnetic resonance imaging sequences [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    The diagnostic accuracy of individual and a combination of MR imaging sequences (late enhancement images, assessment of global edema, relative enhancement and T1 and T2 mapping sequences) will be determined by comparison to endomyocardial biopsies, which serve as diagnostic gold-standard

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Diagnostic performance of biventricular endomyocardial biopsies [ Time Frame: baseline ]
