If amyloid proteins are seen on an echo there is definitely some form of amyloidosis present right?

See Amyloid: I do not know if you can see amyloid protein on 2 d echo, but it just sees some change in normal echo texture and can suggest the possibility of amyloid. If it is confirmedd, then it is called amyloidosis.
Talk to a cardiologist.
