Pediatric Cardiac CT & MRI Reporting

Cardiac MRI provides excellent visualization and no exposure to ionizing radiation. Its negatives include potential lack of availability, high cost, use of gadolinium-based contrast agents, time to perform, and the potential need to sedate the patient.

The advantages of cardiac CT include excellent spatial resolution and visualization of the airways, pulmonary parenchyma, bones, and soft tissues. It is also a very fast exam to perform.
