An asymptomatic man in his 30s was referred to the cardiologist because of heart murmur. The patient had no cardiovascular risk factors, toxic habits or family history of heart disease. In order to study the murmur, an echocardiogram was performed showing a mass in the left atrium. A chest CT angiography was ordered to assess mediastinum and vascular structures. It revealed a heterogeneous cardiac mass without evidence of pulmonary involvement. A cardiac hybrid 18Fluorodesoxiglucose positron emission tomography/MRI (PET/MRI) study was finally performed to characterise the mass (figure 1).
