Abstract

A 69-year-old man diagnosed with lung cancer had a transesophageal echocardiogram performed because of suspicion of intramyocardial tumor. The transesophageal echocardiogram confirmed the presence of both a right and left atrial mass. The lung cancer was believed to be potentially resectable if this mass did not represent tumor; therefore, biopsy of the intracardiac mass was requested. Intracardiac ultrasound was used to guide the biopsy procedure. Using intracardiac ultrasound guidance, a successful biopsy was performed that revealed the presence of tumor cells.
