Congenital cardiac lesions in the adult have characteristic roentgen patterns that should be recognized by the radiologist. In other instances, abnormalities in the aorta or the position of the organs can indicate the likelihood of associated cardiac anomalies. An increasing number of congenital cardiac patients are surviving into adult life because of successful treatment. Some of the complications of these repairs can be recognized on routine chest films.
