Cardiology multimedia library
The Department of Cardiology has created a Web-based multimedia library that provides an unprecedented and unique review of congenital heart disease. The site, edited by Children's Hospital Boston cardiologist Robert Geggel, MD, includes images (electrocardiograms, chest radiographs, diagrams, gross pathology), audio (phonocardiograms) and video (echocardiography, angiocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac surgery) to help educate both physicians and families about congenital heart disease.
