An 18‐year‐old female with multiple intra‐cardiac masses was further evaluated using percutaneous endomyocardial biopsy of the right ventricle and right atrium. Fluoroscopy was used to visualize the course of the bioptome and simultaneous two‐dimensional echo‐cardiography was used to image the masses thus improving the surgeon' chance of obtaining diagnostic tissue.
