Figure 12 (A-C): Pericardial abnormalities. Sagittal reformatted CT image (A) shows a moderate-sized circumferential pericardial effusion (arrows). Axial CT image (B) in a patient with acute pericarditis shows thickening and enhancement of the visceral (straight arrow) and parietal pericardium (curved arrow); there is also surrounding small amount of pericardial fluid (arrowhead). Axial CT image (C) shows extensive calcification of the pericardial layers (arrows). In addition, there is conical deformity of the right ventricle and tubular deformity of the left ventricle, features that are suggestive of pericardial constriction
