Extract

Cardiovascular MRI in Congenital Heart Disease: An Imaging Atlas is an excellent example of what a small imaging atlas should be. It is short but concise, filled with beautiful images and diagrams, and packed with high-yield information. Congenital heart disease is a daunting subject. Most textbooks on this topic are thick and intimidating. This atlas does not attempt to replace such a text. Rather, it is a review of the common imaging findings for a variety of congenital cardiac pathologies, intended for the practicing imager with some prior experience in this field. For readers who are expert in congenital heart disease, this text may be too basic. For those with no experience, this text is too cursory and does not provide enough detail to be used as a primary teaching tool.

Three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging scan depicting an anterior view of the heart of an infant with the congenital cardiac abnormalities that constitute tetralogy of Fallot, the most common form of congenital cyanotic heart disease. The standard presentation consists of pulmonary stenosis, ventricular septal defect, overriding of the aorta (dextraposition of the aorta), and hypertrophy of the right ventricle. Yellow indicates the aorta; orange, the left atrium; red, the right atrium; green, the pulmonary artery; blue, the superior vena cava; and gray, the left ventricle.
