Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Specialized Imaging
For patients with adult congenital heart disease, imaging can be critical for both diagnosis and treatment.
UW Health offers state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) facilities and our imaging specialists have the resources and skill to precisely pinpoint heart abnormalities. As leaders in heart imaging, our imaging specialists have the expertise to create images so unique that only a handful of hospitals in the country produce them. The University of Wisconsin holds the patent on a specific technique to create 4-dimensional images that show the entire heart structure and exact flow of blood.
Ultimately our expert imaging capabilities mean fewer diagnostic catheterizations, more precise diagnoses and lower costs for patients and their insurers.
