Abstract

In this case, CT had advantages over echocardiography and arteriography. The tumor was not detected on the initial echocardiogram. The tumor was identified on the second echocardiogram, but coronary artery involvement was not seen. Arteriography showed the mass and its displacement of the coronary arteries, but did not provide information about the nature of the mass. CT, however, clearly depicted the extent of the mass, its fatty composition, and the involvement of the coronary arteries.
