4D flow provides single sequence rapid protocol for assessment of blood flow, ventricular function, and anatomy in congenital heart disease. Though valve function has been well validated for regurgitant flow fraction, assessment of valve leaflet delineation has been limited by relatively low spatiotemporal resolution. Similarly, coronary origin delineation has been limited. Here, we develop an ultra-high spatiotemporal resolution 4D flow acquisition technique and assess its performance for valve and coronary delineation. 4D flow provides superior delineation of coronaries than echo, is highly likely to depict coronary origins, and is highly likely to provide good valve leaflet delineation.
