Flow alterations in the pulmonary artery (PA) of patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) may be link with elevated kinetic energy (KE). 4D flow MRI allows for the non-invasive volumetric assessment of flow hemodynamics, vorticity, and KE in pediatric patients with rTOF in the pulmonary (PA). Thus, the aim was to investigate the impact of flow alterations in the PA and its association with KE and vorticity.
