LV ( 3 ), while color flow imaging (CFI) is a valuable addition to 2DTTE ( 4 ). However, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) appears to be a promising complementary method for identifying this cardiac entity ( 5 ). Early surgical intervention is

echocardiography no color flow was observed within the cystic cavity. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed to further evaluate the single cyst and rule out other possible differential diagnosis, such as a simple post-infarction blood-filled cyst

inconclusive, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) should also be considered as an alternative to TOE (see ‘Role of other imaging modalities’ section). TOE can be particularly helpful for the diagnosis of right heart endocarditis, since it permits excellent

Introduction Using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging our group has demonstrated right ventricular (RV) dysfunction following lung resection ( 1 ). RV dysfunction in this group is associated with peri-operative morbidity and
