Abstract

The presence of airway and lung disease in children with congenital heart disease is commonly observed with both cardiac CT angiography and routine chest CT. In this review we discuss abnormalities encountered on CT imaging of the chest beyond the heart and central vasculature, focusing on the airways, lung parenchyma and peripheral vasculature. Preoperative and postoperative findings are reviewed as well.
