Novel Techniques in Imaging Congenital Heart Disease: JACC Scientific Statement (JACC January 2024-1)
Recent years have witnessed exponential growth in cardiac imaging technologies allowing better visualization of complex cardiac anatomy and improved assessment of physiology. These advances have become increasingly important as more complex surgical and catheter-based procedures are evolving to address the needs of a growing congenital heart disease (CHD) population. This state-of-the-art review presents advances in echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, cardiac computed tomography, invasive angiography, 3D modeling, and digital twin technology. The article also highlights the integration of artificial intelligence with imaging technology. While some techniques are in their infancy and need further refinement, others have found their way into clinical workflow at well-resourced centers. Studies to evaluate the clinical value and cost-effectiveness of these techniques are needed. For techniques that enhance the value of care for CHD patients, resources will need to be allocated for education and training to promote widespread implementation.
