In our view any child who has an echocardiogram should have structural normality confirmed.


While neonatal echocardiographers may not need to precisely define the nature of a structural abnormality, they DO at least need to be able to appreciate that there IS an abnormality.


Therefore all infants should have a complete set of standard views carried out at their first echo.


The links on the right show a few common structural abnormalities seen in the newborn period.


We will add to the list over time, or feel free to email in your suggested diagnoses or images.
