Congenital heart diseases alter the normal flow of blood through the heart. Conditions range in severity, from those that may simply require routine monitoring, to devastating lesions whose natural history is fatal. These complex conditions often require complicated surgically created cardiac shunts as treatment. Various diseases are often managed with the same procedure, with the goal of altering the abnormal hemodynamics. These surgeries may attempt to repair the lesion and restore normal physiology, or palliate the lesion as a bridge to future treatment including transplantation. This electronic poster provides a case based review of surgically created cardiac shunts. Cases include patients who have undergone bidirectional Glenn, Fontan completion, Rastelli, and Norwood procedures and the Blalock-Taussig shunt. The poster will review the congenital heart abnormalities corrected by these procedures and the anatomy of the shunts on CT and MRI. Read More

Critical alert systems have been implemented to assist radiologists in contacting clinicians and documenting critical findings on imaging. These systems serve as a safety net for patients, facilitating timely, accurate communication of findings. The purpose of this study was to review the critical findings sent through the messaging system at a children’s hospital to determine utilization by radiologists and providers. Read More
