Cardiac Magnetic Resonance in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease



Increasing numbers of adults with congenital heart disease are referred for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Knowledge of the congenital heart anatomy, prior surgical interventions, and the development of an imaging focus for each individual patient plays a crucial role when performing a successful cardiac magnetic resonance imaging examination. The following manuscript focuses on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging considerations of three specific conotruncal congenital heart lesions: tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries (TGA), and physiologically corrected TGA (c-TGA).
