  • Figure 1
    Axial CECT
     

    Axial CECT shows a smooth, well-marginated fat-containing lesion in the interatrial septum.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Hyperplasia / Hypertrophy;

    The lesion is isoattenuating to the subcutaneous fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Hyperplasia / Hypertrophy;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial CECT
     

    The lesion is characteristically dumbbell-shaped resulting from relative sparing near the fossa ovalis.

  • Figure 3
    Axial CECT
     

    A typical waist is seen in the fatty mass at the level of fossa ovalis producing a characteristic dumbbell shape and a wedge-shaped lateral part.

  • Figure 5
    Axial CECT

    A typical waist is seen in the fatty interatrial mass at the level of fossa ovalis (arrow) resulting in a characteristic dumbbell shape or hourglass shape.
