Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has evolved sufficiently to be recognized as a useful complementary noninvasive method to echocardiography in the evaluation of congenital heart disease (CHD). In some cases, MRI is superior to other imaging modalities, particularly in the evaluation of thoracic aortic anomalies and in defining the anatomy of central pulmonary arteries; it is also the procedure of choice in the postoperative follow-up of patients with CHD.
