Magnetic resonance images were obtained in six patients with known or suspected interatrial septal defects (ASD) and 33 subjects without congenital heart disease. Image planes were oriented to the long and short axes of the left ventricle and septum and provided reproducible display of pertinent anatomic landmarks. Of the images in 33 control subjects, three (9%) were falsely positive showing apparent ASD. ASDs were correctly identified and localized in all six patients (five secundum, one… CONTINUE READING
