The evaluation of patients with congenital heart disease, more so than for other disease entities, requires a working knowledge of various congenital heart defects, surgical procedures performed for these defects, and potential complications that may arise. Additionally, assessment of many, often complex, congenital heart defects is not easily accomplished with standardized imaging protocols and requires more of a “hands on” approach at the scanner. This chapter provides a rationale for the use of MRI for congenital heart disease and describes its application in various conditions.
