Management of congenital heart disease (CHD) has recently increased utilization of cross-sectional imaging to plan percutaneous interventions. Cardiac computed tomography (CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging have become indispensable tools for pre-procedural planning prior to intervention in the pediatric cardiac catheterization lab. In this article, we review several common indications for referral and the impact of cross-sectional imaging on procedural planning, success, and patient surveillance.
