Although the pericardium is simply a 2-layered membrane enveloping the heart and great vessels, there are numerous anatomic variations, congenital anomalies, and pathologic conditions that can occur. Although echocardiography is most often the first imaging modality used to assess the pericardium, computed tomography and MR imaging are frequently being used to aid in diagnosis and assess response to therapy. Therefore, detailed knowledge of the pericardium in both its normal and diseased states…

TLDR
The role of MR imaging in the diagnosis of acute myocarditis is reviewed and pixel-wise mapping of T1 and T2 relaxation time have been introduced into the clinical Cardiac MR protocol increasing its accuracy.
Pericarditis and Post-cardiac Injury Syndrome as a Sequelae of Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Clinicians should maintain a high suspicion in this era of revascularization and develop a strategic plan for timely diagnosis and management of pericarditis after AMI.

Prognosis and role of clinical and imaging features in patients with malignant pericardial effusion: a single-center study in China
TLDR
MPE has complex clinical manifestations and an unsatisfactory prognosis, and echocardiographic fluid signs, electrocardiographic evidence of sinus tachycardia, and electronic evidence of cardiac tamponade are independent risk factors affecting prognosis.

The Assessment of Cardiac Masses by Cardiac CT and CMR Including Pre-op 3D Reconstruction and Planning
TLDR
Three-dimensional reconstructions, particularly of CT datasets, are a valuable adjunct in the preoperative assessment of a cardiac mass and may allow a better appreciation of the margins of the mass and its relationship with surrounding structures.
