Abstract

Imaging of the coronary arteries is an important part of the evaluation of children with congenital heart disease and isolated congenital coronary artery anomalies. Echocardiography remains the main imaging modality and is complemented by MRI and CT angiography in the older or difficult-to-image child. We review echocardiography, MRI, and CT angiography for coronary artery imaging, with emphasis on techniques. The clinical implications of isolated congenital coronary artery anomalies are also addressed, along with a discussion about the current consensus on optimal management of these anomalies.
