Abstract

Continuing advances in echocardiographic imaging permit the detection of subtle structural cardiac abnormalities. Proper interpretation of images requires knowledge of normal variants or minimally abnormal findings which may mimic significant pathology. We report 2 cases in which an unusual presentation of a pericardial effusion seen adjacent to the right atrium simulates a right atrial mass and demonstrate the utility of contrast echocardiography in the evaluation of a suspected mass.
