Medical Radiology Diagnostic Imaging
There are now more adults alive with congenital heart disease than children and many will have ongoing problems despite surgical repair. Surgery is never a cure merely a fixand in some cases directly introduces new problems that were not present previously ACHD patients therefore generally require lifelong follow-up in specialized institutions where the technical and clinical expertise exists to recognize and deal with issues as they arise.Imaging lies at the heart of this follow-up process.
Today we have so many advanced modalities to choose from that a nonimager may be bewildered by the options available and uncertain about what test would best answer the clinical problem facing him or her. The purpose of this chapter is to review briefly the strengths and weaknesses of the major cardiac imaging modalities and propose a few principles to help guide the selection of most appropriate modality in each case.
It should be recognized that this is a single author opinion, and—as with everything else in medicine—there is more than one way to skin a cat! Nevertheless the principles here are expected to be non-contentious and largely self-evident.
