Non-invasive imaging is used extensively in patients with congenital heart disease. It is an invaluable tool in both in the initial diagnosis and also with the serial assessment and monitoring of patients. As the technology and our knowledge continues to develop in this field, it has largely replaced the use of invasive techniques, such as cardiac catheterization, for diagnosis and assessment in many conditions. This chapter discusses chest X-ray (CXR), transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), transoesophageal echo (TOE), cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, and computed tomography (CT).
