With the success in the surgical treatment of congenital heart disease, the population of adults with congenital heart disease requiring imaging is soaring. The Role of Imaging in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease: A State-of-the-Art Review is a practical reference guide that covers each major category of congenital heart disease, providing an overview of the diseases as well as specific imaging recommendations for each disease. This handbook has been written for cardiologists who encounter adults with congenital heart disease in clinical practice as an aid to help these patients with appropriate imaging. Additionally, the handbook includes numerous color illustrations of the imaging modalities used, as well as a full appendix of additional images. It also includes a summary of the 2008 ACC/AHA Guidelines for Management of Adults with Congenital Heart Disease as a second appendix. It is considered essential reading for practitioners in this field.
