Previous studies have shown the value of MR imaging for the identification of cardiac masses. The distinction of intramural tumors from normal myocardium may be equivocal because of the similarity of signal intensity between tumor and normal myocardium on ECG-gated SE images. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of Gd-DTPA for improving the contrast between cardiac tumors and myocardium. Four patients with established or suspected cardiac tumors were imaged with a 1.5 T imager. The… CONTINUE READING
