Patient
female, 52 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT

    Fig 1- Chest TC with intravenous contrast shows a hypodense mass in right atrium without contrast enhancement

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MR

    Fig 2 - T1-Weighted TSE image, in cardiac horizontal long axis, shows a mass with 7cm, hyperintense, located in the right atrium and atrial septum.

     
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR

    Fig 3 - T1-Weighted TSE image, in coronal view, depicts the hyperintense mass in right atrium.

     
     
     
  • Figure 4
    MR

    Fig 4 - T1-Weighted TSE image, in sagittal view, showing the confluence of superior and inferior vena cava in the right atrium. The mass does not cause any significant obstruction at this level.

     
     
     
  • Figure 5
    MR

    Fig 5 - T1-Weighted TSE image, with fat-suppression, in coronal view, shows decrease in signal intensity of the mass, like subcutaneous fat.
