Abstract

Congenital structural cardiovascular defects are commonly associated and found concurrently with many different types of genetic diseases and syndromes. Understanding these cardiovascular manifestations is essential for diagnosing these genetic syndromes without delay and provides prompt attention and repair of life-threatening defects without complications. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are increasingly used in the evaluation of cardiovascular abnormalities, and it is imperative for radiologists to be cognizant of the syndromes associated with these abnormalities. In this article, we review the cardiovascular manifestations of the common genetic syndromes and illustrate the role of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the evaluation of these abnormalities.
