Cardiac hemangioma


MRI images of a biopsy-proven cardiac hemangioma.

Intraluminal mass arising from the RV free wall, hyperintense in T2 weighted images with classic hemangioma-like discontinuous nodular enhancement. 

Case Discussion

Cardiac hemangioma is an uncommon benign cardiac tumor (5-10%). They have no typical age of presentation and no typical cardiac chamber predilection.

The appearance, in this case, is typical with hyperintense T2 signal and gradual postcontrast enhancement on the perfusion sequence.
