A variety of cardiac imaging tests can be used to assess cardiac masses. Cardiac magnetic resonance provides particular utility for this purpose, as it enables assessment of mass location, size, and tissue properties with high spatial and temporal resolution. This study (JCMR paper) provides a comprehensive evaluation of state of the art CMR methods for assessment of cardiac neoplasm and thrombus among a broad cohort of patients with systemic cancer. This JCMR paper and associated CMR materials will provide the reader with an understanding of the incremental utility of late gadolinium enhancement CMR for identification and prognostic risk stratification of patients with cardiac neoplasm and thrombus. Following this activity, learners will better understand incremental utility of late gadolinium enhancement CMR tissue characterization (as compared to conventional cine-CMR) for identification and prognostic risk stratification of cancer-associated cardiac neoplasm and thrombus.
