Abstract

This report describes findings present on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and computed tomography (CT) in a patient with carcinoid heart disease. Major abnormalities included thickening and immobility of the tricuspid valve leaflets and disturbed flow patterns indicative of tricuspid stenosis and regurgitation demonstrated with cine MR. While echocardiography is usually the initial imaging modality in patients with carcinoid heart disease, other modalities such as MR and CT may provide correlative or supplemental information.
