  • Anesthesia and sedation - greater degree of co - operation required
  • Artifacts - cardiac MR imaging susceptible to imaging artifacts inherent in MR imaging
  • Coil selection - appropriate to maximize signal to noise ratio
  • Contrast angiography - obtaining overall view of thoracic vasculature
  • ECG signal - replaced by use of vectorcardiography (VCG)
  • Flow measurement - quantifying cardiac shunt
  • Respiratory motion - eliminated by breath-holding
  • Scanner suite - imaging of structures necessitating excellent spatial resolution
  • Sequence adjustment - adjustment of image factors to optimize image quality
  • Technical aspects of pediatric cardiac MR
