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

In brief: Biopsy...

Biopsy can be performed for confirmation.
Cardiac perfusion scan in conjunction with cardiac FDG pet scan can be used to evaluate cardiac amyloidosis.

In brief: 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.
