Abstract

Adults with congenital heart disease represent a growing population with challenging and complex medical management. Pulmonary scintigraphy can play a valuable role in the evaluation and care of this patient population. We present a review of the variety of clinical scenarios where pulmonary scintigraphy can be helpful in the evaluation of adults with congenital heart disease, along with technical considerations associated with these studies.
