Cardiac paragangliomas are rare tumors of neural crest origin, most frequently seen in the left atrium. There are mixed opinions regarding the most appropriate imaging study for diagnosis and evaluation. We describe the novel utility of 18-F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging in the case of a 42-year-old male with cardiac paraganglioma.
