PMID:  20838723     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 74-year-old man presented with chest pain and dyspnoea at the cardiology outpatient clinic. His past medical history included an anterior myocardial infarction in 2008. In the coronary angiogram, a 'halo image' was seen right after the injection of the contrast agent, and it corresponded with the location of the left ventricular aneurysm. A calcified left ventricular aneurysm with mural thrombus was confirmed with cardiac MRI and a CT scan.
