Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Two cases of primary cardiac sarcomas diagnosed with CT are presented. CT demonstrated the origin, extent, and potential pathology of the tumors. In both cases CT provided more specific information for diagnosis and treatment planning than the 2D echocardiography. The advantages of CT in the detection of cardiac tumors as well as its potential advantages over 2D echocardiography are also discussed.
