Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is widely used to confirm the diagnosis of acute myocarditis (AM) in the acute setting. CMR is often repeated after 6 months to assess the evolution of myocardial involvement. However, the clinical and prognostic role of 6-month CMR is unknown. This multicenter study aimed to evaluate the clinical and prognostic role of 6-month repetition of CMR in patients with AM.
