Children's Heart Program

The Children's Heart Program performs cardiac evaluations using the most advanced technology to diagnose structural and functional cardiac abnormalities in patients from infancy through young adulthood.

In cooperation with Maternal/Fetal Medicine specialists from the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, the division provides comprehensive fetal echocardiographic services for high-risk pregnancies. Division members work closely with other disciplines to offer extensive medical and supportive care.
