Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A cardiac thrombus provides a substrate for thromboembolic events. Delayed enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance imaging detects a thrombus based on avascular tissue properties, and has been shown to provide improved detection of a left ventricular thrombus, compared with anatomic imaging using echocardiography. We present a case of a young man with cerebrovascular stroke in whom delayed enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance provided incremental diagnostic utility for identification of a thrombus within both the left-sided and right-sided cardiac chambers.
