  • Figure 1
    SSFP MR sequence
     

    SSFP MR sequence, in short-axis (a) and three chamber view (b) revealed a well-defined, small ovoid, mobile mass in the left ventricle, attached by a stalk to the endocardial surface of the mid-anterior septum.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    The mass was hyperintense in T2-WI (TR/TE:1714/100ms) (a) and in fat-saturation sequence (STIR) there was a complete homogeneous loss of signal intensity (b).
