MRI ­was ­used to diag­nose a med­i­as­ti­nal ­mass in a eld­er­ly ­patient ­with pre­vi­ous ­repair of aor­tic coarc­ta­tion. ­MRI exclud­ed aneu­rysm by dem­on­strat­ing a homo­ge­ne­ous ­mass encas­ing aor­ta ­and ­the ­bypass ­graft. A sec­ond thor­a­cot­o­my ­was avoid­ed. Moreover, out­pa­tient test­ing ­was per­formed, with­out expo­sure to con­trast ­agents, ion­iz­ing radi­a­tion, or an inva­sive pro­ce­dure.
