Including unique video material, this text offers unrivaled focus on CMR imaging in pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease. The rising incidence of CHD more than warrants a dedicated text on a subject normally covered in a single chapter.
Over past two decades, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has come to occupy an ever more important place in the assessment and management of patients with congenital heart defects (CHD) and other cardiovascular disorders. It offers an ever-expanding amount of information about the heart and circulation, provides outstanding images of cardiovascular morphology and function, is increasingly being used to detect pathologic fibrosis, and has an expanding role in the assessment of myocardial viability. Despite its impressive clinical performance, its limitations and weaknesses also need to be clearly understood.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Congenital Heart Disease is an excellent foundation for any reader not familiar with the field whether they are imagers or clinicians who deal with cardiovascular disease. It also describes the technical details of MRI techniques to help the clinician understand the most important elements of CMR in assessing and managing their patients. In creating the book, the editors have assembled a world-renowned panel of contributors to review the use of CMR in CHD and make it accessible to those working in the field and to those who use the information derived from CMR in their clinical practice.

This textbook is alone in focusing on the subject of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease. The topic of congenital heart disease imaging is usually relegated to a single chapter in most general CMR texts. The expanding scope of CHD warrants a text dedicated to covering CHD and CMR imaging in detail. Our proposed book aims to be a comprehensive and authoritative text on this subject.
This book is be a multi-authored, illustrated text that includes supplementary access to a number of clinical videos. Authors have been selected from imaging experts in the most medically advanced areas of the world, heavily weighted by experts in the US and Europe to produce the quintessential reference in this topic.
