Imaging the pediatric CHD heart

Research cited in Magnetic Resonance Imaging addresses methods to improve the coronary image quality in pediatric patients with a potential congenital heart disease (CHD) diagnosis.

  • Researchers from Kings College London, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust, Evelina Children’s Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center are together investigating this research area.
  • And are discerning ‘… whether gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA) together with self-navigated inversion-prepared coronary magnetic resonance angiography (CMRA) sequence design improves coronary image quality in pediatric patients.’
