A careful examination of signs, symptoms and the phono and electrocardiograms and chest x-rays will usually narrow the differential diagnosis in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease. Definitive laboratory studies, particularly biplane angiocardiography, are mandatory to confirm the diagnosis and to assess the possibilities for surgical treatment.

    Background: Using first-pass MRA (FP-MRA) spatial resolution is limited by breath-hold duration. In addition, image quality may be hampered by respiratory and cardiac motion artefacts. In order to overcome these limitations an ECG- and navigator-gated high-resolution-MRA sequence (HR-MRA) with...
