Surgically corrected congenital heart disease: Utility of 64-MDCT

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the CT appearance of postoperative morphology and complications after surgical correction of congenital heart anomalies. CONCLUSION. Echocardiography is typically the initial imaging technique used for congenital heart disease; however, some thoracic regions are beyond the imaging scope of echocardiography, particularly after surgical revision. This article shows, through a series of illustrative cases, the usefulness of 64-MDCT in these patients.
