198. ACHD: Cardiovascular Multimodality Imaging in Congenital Heart Disease with Dr. Eric Krieger

CardioNerds (Daniel Ambinder), ACHD series co-chairs, Dr. Josh Saef(ACHD fellow, University of Pennsylvania) Dr. Daniel Clark(ACHD fellow, Vanderbilt University), and ACHD FIT lead Dr. Jon Kochav (Columbia University) join Dr. Eric Krieger (Director of the Seattle Adult Congenital Heart Service and the ACHD Fellowship, University of Washington) to discuss multimodality imaging in congenital heart disease. Audio editing byCardioNerds Academy Intern,Dr. Maryam Barkhordarian.

In this episode we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the imaging modalities most commonly utilized in the diagnosis and surveillance of patients with ACHD. Specifically, we discuss transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac MRI and cardiac CT. The principles learned are then applied to the evaluation of two patient cases – a patient status post tetralogy of Fallot repair with a transannular patch, and a patient presenting with right ventricular enlargement of undetermined etiology.

TheCardioNerds Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) seriesprovides a comprehensive curriculum to dive deep into the labyrinthine world of congenital heart disease with the aim of empowering every CardioNerd to help improve the lives of people living with congenital heart disease. This series is multi-institutional collaborative project made possible by contributions of stellar fellow leads and expert faculty from several programs, led by series co-chairs,Dr. Josh Saef,Dr. Agnes Koczo, andDr. Dan Clark.

The CardioNerds Adult Congenital Heart Disease Series is developed in collaboration with the Adult Congenital Heart Association, The CHiP Network, and Heart University. See more
