Abstract/OtherAbstract:
MRI has become an important imaging tool that complements echocardiography in the noninvasive evaluation of congenital heart defects. It can play a crucial role in diagnosis by assessing anatomic and functional features in CHD and identifying complications and postoperative sequelae. The performance and application of cardiac MRI require not only knowledge of the clinical question that needs to be addressed but knowledge of the anatomic characteristics of a variety of congenital heart lesions. A knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of the different imaging sequences also is important so as to optimize and expedite the examination.
