Image-Guided Intervention Center will be the first of its kind in the nation. This Center will give many children with congenital heart disease the opportunity to be diagnosed and treated through cardiac MRI. This 3-D imaging will be faster and offer exquisite detail of the heart and the opportunity to conduct a procedure in real-time, even as the heart beats. Procedure examples include fixing holes in the heart, connecting vessels and valve repair. Cardiac MRI will also eventually eliminate the need to use X-Ray (2-D) for diagnosis and treatment; therefore, excluding harmful radiation.
