Congenital Heart Valve Program Advance Valve Imaging

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

When patients come to Boston Children’s with severe forms of congenital heart valve disease, it is critically important for us to create an accurate “roadmap” to determine what kind of treatment is needed. To guide us, cardiologists and surgeons from Boston Children’s have been working with our colleagues in industry to develop the methods and techniques that provide the most “real-life” in-depth view of heart valves. While the results of these efforts continue to evolve, our patients are already benefiting from these advanced imaging techniques

 

Our imaging center is unique in the application of three-dimensional echocardiographic imaging of the diseased valve to guide surgical planning, and to evaluate the success of the surgical repair.  In conjunction with advances in imaging processing developed at our center, three-dimensional echocardiography is used for clinical research studies to develop improved strategies of surgical repair, and to evaluate both short and long term outcomes.”
