Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) occurs in 1 in 3,500 births and is the most common cyanotic congenital heart defect. Patients with repaired TOF (rTOF) require constant monitoring to prevent life-threatening adverse effects. Hence, this study used 4D Flow MRI to assess pulmonary flow hemodynamics in patients with rTOF. All hemodynamic parameters calculated along the main pulmonary were shown to be higher in patients compared to controls.
