Abstract

Neonatal congenital heart disease is a most difficult area of diagnostic radiology because of the small patient body size and fast resting heart rate. Recently, the spatial and temporal resolution of multidetector-row CT (MDCT) has evolved so that neonatal congenital heart disease can be precisely diagnosed. We describe the role of MDCT in neonatal congenital heart disease and offer tips for the scanning procedure to familiarize radiologists with this developing field.
