We present the appearance of chordae tendineae calcification on transthoracic echocardiography and ECG-gated cardiac computed tomography in a 75 year-old woman. While the etiology is unclear, the abnormality can be clearly delineated on a properly performed CT study. We also discuss modification of the cardiac CT protocol to optimize visualization of the tricuspid valve apparatus.
