Although, an accurate initial diagnosis of acute myocarditis can be challenging to make, all patients with suspected acute myocarditis need a thorough diagnostic work-up and undergo a full imaging evaluation from the very outset to rule out other condition with a similar clinical picture. An acute myocarditis and acute myocardial infarction may musgarate each other, as a result a thorough evaluation is warranted to be certain of the diagnosis, and these patients should be managed in a high cardiac care setting. The diagnosis of an acute myocarditis is based on symptoms, elevated markers of myocardial necrosis, electrocardiographic and imaging modalities including echocardiographic changes. A broad range of diagnostic tools are warranted during the initial diagnostic work-up, however a full echocardiographic evaluation should form an integral imaging modality to rule out other cardiac and systemic disorders, to properly evaluate ventricular function and presence of pericardial collections; and to further guide management.
