Figure 2 (A-F): Pericardial gossypiboma in a 54-year-old male patient. Posteroanterior chest radiograph (A) shows a mass on the left side of the heart (arrows). Contrast-enhanced chest CT (B) reveals sharply defined rounded mass with enhanced rim (arrows) and central high-density curvilinear stripes (asteriks) at the left atrioventricular groove, compressing the left atrium and left ventricle. Cardiac MRI demonstrates enhancing smooth capsula (arrows) which was hypointense on T1-and T2-weighted images (C-E) and whorled wavy hypointensities (asteriks) on T1-and T2-weighted images (C, D). Internal component did not have any contrast enhancement. Diffusion-weighted images showed no diffusion reduction excluding an abscess (F). LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle
