The last 10 years has seen explosive expansion of the number of centres performing cardiov- cular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. The majority of this expansion has been in the ? eld of adult ischaemic imaging, but congenital heart disease remains one of the main indications for CMR. Importantly, the greatly improved survival of patients with congenital heart disease gives us a burgeoning adult population living with the sequelae of the disease (grown-up c- genital heart disease - GUCH). Without previous experience or formal training, the interpretation of CMR images of patients with congenital heart disease can be dif? cult. The main aim of this book is to create a portable resource that offers ef? cient access to high-quality MR (and where appropriate, CT) images of the common congenital and structural heart abnormalities. We hope that by prov- ing key images for each condition and a clear interpretation of the MR appearances, we will improve the reader's understanding of the conditions, facilitate their interpretation of images and optimise the planning of the imaging protocols during their own practice of congenital CMR. As with any publication from a single institution, the contents of this book represent our own practice. We have not written a de? nitive or exhaustive description of the conditions.


The interpretation of MR images of congenital heart disease can be difficult without previous experience or formal training. This book provides insight into specific, pathologic conditions along with key MR and CT images depicting the pathology with a clear interpretation. Each image is detailed and clearly labeled with a central key for the specific condition, allowing the reader to track anatomical structures through the separate imaging planes. A concise yet clear interpretation of each image is given to aid learning. The imaging planes and protocols used to obtain the images are presented, allowing the user to plan future MR studies of patients with similar conditions.

From the reviews: "Cardiovascular MRI in Congenital Heart Disease ... is an excellent example of what a small imaging atlas should be. It is short but concise, filled with beautiful images and diagrams, and packed with high-yield information. ... the still images are of excellent quality, and the findings are well demonstrated. ... an excellent reference atlas for reviewing the appearance of congenital cardiac anomalies on MRI scans. ... could be exceptionally useful to any reader asked to perform an MRI scan on patients with congenital heart disease." (Daniel Cornfeld, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 304 (21), December, 2010)
