Table 2 Anatomy and ventricular function assessment in single ventricles

From: Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance/European Society of Cardiovascular Imaging/American Society of Echocardiography/Society for Pediatric Radiology/North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging Guidelines for the use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance in pediatric congenital and acquired heart disease

Anatomy Ventricular function
Viscero-atrial situs, ventricular morphology and cardiac segments Ventricular EDV
Aortic arch, aimed mostly at patients with an aortic to pulmonary anastomosis, to assess for aortic arch obstruction Ventricular ESV
Pulmonary artery, to assess for pulmonary artery stenosis, hypoplasia, discontinuity Ventricular stroke volume
Atrial septal defect Ventricular EF
Ventricular outflow tract obstruction (especially in patients with a bulboventricular foramen) Cardiac index
Systemic-pulmonary and veno-veno collaterals Regional wall motion
Anomalous venous structures  
Pulmonary or systemic venous obstruction
Systemic venous return such as interrupted inferior vena cava with azygous continuation or the presence of a left superior vena cava
  1. EDV end-diastolic value, EF ejection fraction, ESV end-systolic volume
