Results

CT and MR imaging should be used when findings at echocardiography are difficult to interpret or conflict with clinical findings.

Infection, neoplasm, injury, and congenital disease all may affect the pericardium. Although echocardiography is the primary imaging modality used to examine the pericardium, CT and MR imaging provide various advantages, especially in cases of loculated or hemorrhagic effusion, constrictive pericarditis, and pericardial masses.
