CMR and MDCT in Cardiac Masses: From Acquisition Protocols by Alexis Jacquier (auth.)

By Alexis Jacquier (auth.)

This e-book, detailed in focusing in particular on cardiac lots, is the results of cooperation between a couple of groups of radiologists operating lower than the aegis of the French Society of Cardiovascular Imaging (SFICV). Its aim is to one) overview the various CMR sequences and CT acquisition protocols used to discover cardiac lots, 2) to illustrate the different CMR and MDCT positive aspects of cardiac lots. it's been designed as a instructing software and provides a completely illustrated compendium of scientific situations, tables summarizing info, and decision-making bushes crucial in daily perform. it's provided as a realistic instruction manual and will be both learn hide to hide or consulted at any time when wanted in the course of a cardiac imaging project. The booklet is meant for all scholars and skilled practitioners, no matter if radiologists or no longer, who're attracted to cardiac or thoracic pathology.

Sample text

5 Thrombus and Endomyocardial Fibrosis 33 Background There are three different stages of cardiac involvement in idiopathic eosinophilia: (1) a necrotic stage, which is due to eosinophils infiltrating the endocardium and causing microabscesses; (2) an intermediate thrombonecrotic stage during which thrombi appear on the surface of the necrotic myocardium of both ventricles; (3) and later a fibrous stage during which the myocardium and the chordae tendineae become fibrotic and the patient develops restrictive cardiomyopathy.

Two thirds of the patients affected present with one or several cardiac myxomas. Some very specific features will suggest the diagnosis of Carney complex: multiple myxoma, atypical topography, recurrence after resection, younger age of onset and male gender [48, 49]. Most myxomas have a broad base of attachment, although a few have narrow pedicles that are characteristically attached to the interatrial septum. 3 Papillary Fibroelastoma of the Mitral Valve Gwenaelle Pouliquen, Karine Warin-Fresse, and Dominique Crochet Case Report A 72-year-old male was explored by echocardiography to assess the sudden onset of a sight disorder.

The presence of myocardial scarring and/or an akinetic area is an independent factor increasing the risk of thrombus [39]. CMR cine and late enhancement sequences are more sensitive and specific than transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography to diagnose thrombi. 3 Thrombus and Heart Transplantation Dominique Grisoli, Alberto Riberi, Vladimir Gariboldi, Frédréric Collart, Guy Moulin, and Alexis Jacquier Case Report A 68-year-old male patient who had undergone heart transplantation surgery was given a routine echocardiographic examination.
