Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The major focus of this chapter is on echocardiography as this is the dominant modality used during clinical review but the importance of other modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or Computed Tomography (CT) will be discussed where relevant. Multimodality imaging has become the norm in the assessment of the patient with CHD particularly for surgical planning, follow-up after surgery and in older patients with suboptimal acoustic windows.
