History: A 78 year old patient was admitted to the Accident and Emergency department with a syncope. The ECG showed a broad complex tachycardia (left bundle-branch morphology with superior axis) with a rate of 230 bpm. The patient received DC cardioversion under sedation, which resulted in sinus rhythm.

History: A 49-year old male patient with previous history of inferior infarction treated with angioplasty and stenting of the RCA, was admitted for new onset angina at rest.
|Number 10-18: Aortic Coarctation Repair with associated Bicuspid Aortic Valve
History: 3D MRA demonstrating pre and post stenting of descending thoracic aorta coactation in addition to a bicuspid aortic valve with dilated aortic root.
|Number 10-17: Clinical role of perfusion CMR *** CASE WINNER
History: **best case of the week in 2011. A patient with chest pain had echocardiography suspicious for HCM - CMR resolved the true diagnosis of multivessel CAD.
|Number 10-16: Improvement in Image Quality in Atrial Fibrillation by using a Novel Prospective Reconstruction Method
History: Presentation of alternative techniques for improving image quality in patients with arrhythmia.
|Number 10-15: T2* CMR to tailor chelation therapies
History: A 35 year old male with beta-thalassemia major, regularly transfused since the age of 30 months, started chelation treatment with subcutaneous desferrioxamine at the age of 4 years.

History: Electrical Activation of Atrial Fibrillation via persistent left SVC
|Number 10-13: Cardiac Metastasis of the Renal Cell Carcinoma Diagnosed by CMR
History: A 59 year old male with history of pleuritic chest pain and pulmonary embolism presenting with painless hematuria
|Number 10-12: Spiral Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
History: This is a case of HCM with asymmetrical hypertrophy which is distributed in a spiral or helical way from base to apex.
|Number 10-11: Cardiac Sarcoidosis
History: A 32-year-old man presented with chest pain, fever, erythema nodosum of the lower extremities and swelling of both ankles. ECG showed ST-elevation in leads I and aVL and troponin was raised 40-fold.
|Number 10-10: The Case of Three Ventricles
History: Large left ventricular basilar aneurysm with thrombus secondary to infarct
|Number 10-09: Acute Pulmonary Edema in an Active Duty Officer in Iraq
History: A 27-year-old female active duty soldier with no significant past medical history was evacuated from Iraq for flash pulmonary edema.
|Number 10-08: Perfusion Abnormalities in Cardiac Amyloidosis
History: A 68 year-old hypertensive male patient presented with typical chest pain. The ECG showed new characteristic ischemic changes and troponin dosage was positive. An urgent coronary angiogram revealed unobstructed epicardial coronary arteries. The echo showed a significant degree of septal wall thickening, out of proportion with his well-controlled blood pressure profile, suggesting possible hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
|Number 10-07: Sludge infarcts due to homozygous sickle cell anemia
History: 16 y/o male with homozygous sickle cell anemia presenting with a history of chest pain and normal coronary angiography.
|Number 10-06: Common Trick, Uncommon Application
History: An incorrect diagnosis of Gerbode defect by CMR clarifed by echocardiography with agitated saline.
|Number 10-05: Dobutamine inducible ischaemia: Case 2
History: An 48 year old male was admitted to hospital with 6 hours of crushing central chest pain.
|Number 10-04: Hemorrhagic myocardial infarction
History: Case demonstrating CMR sequences which can aid in the effective diagnosis of hemorrhagic infarct
|Number 10-03: Unicuspid aortic valve and associated anomalies
History: A 24-year-old male underwent a subclavian flap repair for aortic coarctation at the age of 1. A recent echocardiogram had been reported as showing mild aortic regurgitation and a dilated aortic root.
|Number 10-02: Dobutamine inducible ischaemia: Case 1
History: 62 year old asthmatic male presented to the cardiologists with worsening atypical chest pain and breathlessness on exertion.
|Number 10-01: Myofibroblastic tumor of the right atrium in a 2-year old boy
