A 72-year-old man presented with a papillary fibroelastoma on the non-coronary cusp of the aortic valve. He was asymptomatic, with a history of hypertension and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Echocardiography revealed a mobile, round mass (13 × 15 mm) on the non-coronary cusp of the aortic valve. Scanning with 320-slice multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) also revealed a mass on the non-coronary cusp of the aortic valve. The tumor was subsequently excised from the aortic valve. In this case, the MDCT images were extremely clear and provided useful information like that obtained with echocardiography.
