4D-flow-MRI can serve as a non-invasive imaging modality to monitor patients with congenital heart disease and status post surgical repair. Patients with Fontan-circulation need to be followed up regularly to identify the right time for re-intervention to avoid pulmonary hypertension or atrophy due to hyper- or hypoperfusion, respectively and the development of protein-losing enteropathy.
