    Anteroposterior view: rounded opacification in the left atrium.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Chest X-ray;

    Lateral view.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Chest X-ray;

    Electron-beam computed tomography
     

    Transverse slice through the heart: aortic root, pulmonary trunk, left ventricle, right ventricle, left atrium. Posterior to the LA a large aneurysm of the coronary bypass graft to the circumflex artery can be seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Electron-beam computed tomography;

    Multiplanar reconstruction shows the locally dilated coronary artery bypass graft to the circumflex artery filled with thrombotic masses.

    SSD. 3D reconstruction of the heart and coronary artery bypass graft to the circumflex artery shows a large dilated aneurysm of the graft filled with thrombotic masses. The projection is the same as in Figure 1c.
