Note that the cardiac silhouette appears larger on the AP radiograph and may be mistaken for disease if patient position is not considered in the interpretation. IMAGING OF THE HEART AND GREAT VESSELS between the left pulmonary artery and transverse aortic arch (the AP window). The aorta originates posterior and to the right of the main pulmonary artery, and the border of the ascending portion of the aorta can usually be seen superimposed on the inferior portion of the SVC. The majority of the transverse arch is not outlined by air and therefore cannot be seen as it crosses the mediastinum.

Echocardiography, MR imaging, or CT or cardiac angiography may be selected for patients with suspected congenital heart disease. The advantages of MR imaging in this setting is that it is noninvasive, generally needs no contrast material administration, and uses no ionizing radiation, an important consideration in the pediatric patient. For these reasons, MR imaging has become the preferred imaging test in the pediatric population. As dose reduction techniques have improved, the use of CT for congenital heart disease has also increased.

Images made just before and after injection of contrast material into the arteries can be subtracted digitally, so that only the vascular system appears in the subtracted image. ᮣ Spot Film Devices The aforementioned image recording methods merely store the image recorded by the TV camera, which is of lower quality than a radiographic image and has even poorer resolution than the image appearing on the output phosphor of the image-intensifier tube because of the limitations of the TV imaging process.
