We present the case of a 68-year-old man with previous history of myocardial infarction and coronary artery bypass grafting. An initial chest X-ray showed a curvilinear calcification involving the left-sided profile of the mediastinal shadow. Cardiac MRI cine images demonstrated findings compatible with a calcified anterior myocardial infarction.
