Abstract

Over the past decade, there has been increasing use of cardiac MRI in the evaluation of children with congenital heart disease. There has also been an increased number of radiologists and pediatric cardiologists desiring to perform cardiac MRI in the evaluation of these patients. At the present time, the number of pediatric cardiologists and radiologists fully trained in the use of MRI studies for CHD is inadequate to provide this modality at all institutions with MRI capabilities. This article describes the collaborative approach between pediatric cardiology and radiology at Madigan Army Medical Center and its implications for patient care and credentialing.
