Today it's been 5 years since my son Matthew's A.V. Canal repair. I remember the nurses: Shannon, Jaime, and Patrick....They were so good with Matthew and with my husband and I.
If it wasn't for Children's Hospital and the Cardiac wing he wouldn't be here. Thank you all for what you have done for us and giving him a chance to grow in front of our eyes! Thank you Dr. Mah, Dr. Baird, and Dr. de Ferranti we owe you the world.
5 years ago today, I placed my one week old son in Dr. Emani's hands to repair his COA. I remember it like it was yesterday, and I'm thankful every day for the care we received at the Heart Center at Boston Children's Hospital.
1 year ago today Dr Baird performed open heart surgery on Cayman. It did NOT slow him down. Today his heart is as good as new and he barely even has a scar. Thank you Dr Baird and everyone on the cardiac floor at Boston Children's Hospital.
Two years ago today we were at Boston Children's Hospital and our daughter, Emily, was having an aortic stent placed. We were told it would have to be replaced by the time she turned 2 (which was last June) but its still in place and working beautifully. We thank God every day for the amazing work of Dr. Gerald Marx and Dr. James Lock.
This weekend we celebrated our beautiful daughter, Mikayla's 1st birthday and that’s thanks to the amazing surgeons and staff on the 8th floor!! Mikayla was born with a rare diagnosis of Pentalogy of Cantrell which included several heart defects.
Being able to see what’s going on in your child’s heart is incredibly useful for doctors. If your child might have or is diagnosed with heart disease, imaging provides them with evidence to make an accurate diagnosis and helps them reach decisions about the best course of treatment.
At Boston Children’s Hospital, has long been a world leader in advanced cardiac imaging of congenital and acquired pediatric heart disease. We are committed to:
Our Division of Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging is able to provide incredibly detailed pictures of your child’s heart that allow cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to best map out treatment strategies.
In the past, surgeons needed to rely on x-rays to sketch out approaches to fixing a heart defect, but thanks to advances in cardiovascular MRI and echocardiography, our specialists can use intricately detailed images to plan and execute surgeries down to the smallest details.
The Division of Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging is headed by Tal Geva, MD and is among the largest, most advanced programs in the country staffed by by 20 radiologists and cardiologists who are specifically trained in pediatric cardiac imaging
We perform about 20,000 echocardiograms each year, including transthoracic, transesphageal, stress and fetal echocardiograms, utilizing the latest cardiac ultrasound techniques.
Imaging children poses challenges that adult imaging does not. It can be hard for kids to hold still for an echocardiogram or they may be afraid to get an MRI. Adult-centered practices may not have the necessary tools to fully meet the needs of pediatric patients. As one the country's largest and most advanced programs in the country, the Division of Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging is uniquely equipped to meet the imaging needs of children.
