Role of Three-Dimensional Rotational Angiography in Imaging the Pulmonary Arteries
Noninvasive imaging modalities such as echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and CT have greatly enhanced our abilities to assess the pulmonary arteries (PAs) in complex forms of congenital heart disease (CHD). These noninvasive modalities have helped reduce the need for diagnostic cardiac catheterization while simultaneously allowed for effective preprocedural planning for either transcatheter or surgical intervention of complex problems, including PA stenosis.
