Congenital heart defects represent the most common birth defect and affect millions of children worldwide. Defects of the heart and great vessels span a broad spectrum. Modern medical progress has enabled more than 90% of patients to reach adulthood.

This book details all important imaging techniques for diagnosing congenital heart defect and assessing their severity. The author is a highly experienced expert in his fields, making his clinical experience available to readers who can then implement that knowledge in their own daily routine.
