van Beek EJ, Stolpen AH, Khanna G, Thompson BH - Cancer Imaging (2007)

Bottom Line: This article reviews the pathological classification of cardiac and pericardial neoplasms, the incidence of the various tumor types, and the role of CT and MRI, including their major differences and clinical impact on patient management.

Left ventricular fibroma on 3D reconstructed CT (a) and MRI. Frame from a coronal T2-weighted cine TrueFISP MR sequence (b) shows a large epicardial mass which is isointense to myocardium and expands into the pericardial space. Note the small pericardial effusion. Mass shows modest contrast enhancement after IV gadolinium on axial fat suppressed T1-weighted image (c).

Figure 2: Left ventricular fibroma on 3D reconstructed CT (a) and MRI. Frame from a coronal T2-weighted cine TrueFISP MR sequence (b) shows a large epicardial mass which is isointense to myocardium and expands into the pericardial space. Note the small pericardial effusion. Mass shows modest contrast enhancement after IV gadolinium on axial fat suppressed T1-weighted image (c).

Mentions: Most fibromas are located within the ventricular wall, producing compression or obstruction of the ventricular lumen (Fig. 2). Tumor calcification may be present.
