Lipomatous hypertrophy of interatrial septum. Axial T1-weighted double inversion recovery MR image (a) shows marked thickening and high signal intensity of the interatrial septum. The thickened septum shows a signal void after inversion recovery fat suppression is applied (B).

Figure 3: Lipomatous hypertrophy of interatrial septum. Axial T1-weighted double inversion recovery MR image (a) shows marked thickening and high signal intensity of the interatrial septum. The thickened septum shows a signal void after inversion recovery fat suppression is applied (B).

Mentions: Lipomatous tissue is easily distinguished by CT as hypodense tissue with characteristic attenuation of −20 to 50 HU, while MRI will demonstrate high signal intensity on T1 and T2-weighted imaging, with complete signal drop-out using fat-saturation imaging. Lipomas tend to appear as well-defined masses and should not be confused with interatrial septal lipomatous hypertrophy as demonstrated in Fig. 3[25].
