Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This article reviews the optimal cardiac MRI sequences for and the spectrum of imaging appearances of cardiac tumors.

CONCLUSION:

Recent technologic advances in cardiac MRI have resulted in the rapid acquisition of images of the heart with high spatial and temporal resolution and excellent myocardial tissue characterization. Cardiac MRI provides optimal assessment of the location, functional characteristics, and soft-tissue features of cardiac tumors, allowing accurate differentiation of benign and malignant lesions.
