- About this Article
Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects almost one in 100 newborn babies worldwide (Hoffman). The continuous advances and availability of noninvasive cardiac imaging has revolutionised the management of these cases, allowing various methods to complement one another. To have a better understanding of the varied and oftencomplex cardiac and extra-cardiac anatomy in patients with CHD, additional imaging may be required as a supplement to more traditional firstline modalities such as echocardiography (ECHO).
