Figure 5 (A-C): Cardiac masses. Three-chamber reformatted CT image (A) shows a layered thrombus in the left ventricular apex (arrow); there is an associated linear band of calcification (arrowhead). Four-chamber reformatted CT image (B) shows a fatty mass in the inter-atrial septum (straight arrows) with sparing of the fossa ovalis (curved arrow); this is characteristic of lipomatous hypertrophy. Axial CT scan (C) shows a well-defined mobile mass (arrow) attached to the anterior mitral valve leaflet, consistent with myxoma
