Abstract

A major advantage of echocardiography over other advanced imaging modalities (magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomographic angiography) is that echocardiography is mobile and real time. Echocardiograms can be recorded at the bedside, in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, in the cardiovascular intensive care unit, in the emergency room -indeed, any place that can accommodate a wheeled cart. This tremendous advantage allows for the performance of imaging immediately before, during, and after various procedures involving interventions. This article provides information on the selection of congenital heart disease and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy patients for interventions, monitoring during the performance of interventions, and assessing the effects of interventions after their completion. The use of imaging techniques to guide even well-established procedures enhances the efficiency and safety of these procedures.
