Abstract

Presently, there are few reports in the database about a contrast-enhanced ultrasound-assisted diagnosis of cardiac cavernous hemangioma. We report a case of giant cavernous hemangioma of the heart, which was diagnosed using contrast-enhanced ultrasound. Finally, it was confirmed by surgical pathology. This case demonstrates that contrast-enhanced ultrasound can play an important role in the diagnosis of cardiac cavernous hemangioma.
