  • Figure 1
    Figure 1. Chest Radiography

    Chest radiography showing a suspicious opacity.

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Figure 2. CT scan with iodine contrast media administration.

    CT scan demonstrated a solid mass related to anterior mediastinum

     
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Figure 3 A, B. Balanced Fast Field Echo sequence on heart short axis plane

    Balanced Fast Field Echo of cardiac short axis in diastole (A) and systole (B) demonstrating the relationship between the mass and the left ventricle wall.

     
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Figure 4. Spin Echo T1 weighted image

    Axial T1 weighted image: the mass appears isointense to the myocardium

     
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Figure 5. Spin Echo T2 weighted image.

    Sagittal T2 weighted image. The mass appears hyperintense to the myocardium. Pericardial effusion is also present.

     
     
     
  • Figure 6
    Figure 6. T1 weighted image during Gadolinium injection.

    T1 weighted image during Gadolinium injection. Heterogeneous enhancement of the lesion in the same short axis view of figure 3
