2020 ACC / AHA / ASE / HRS / ISACHD / SCAI / SCCT / SCMR / SOPE Appropriate Use Criteria for Multimodality Imaging During the Follow-up Care of Patients with Congenital Heart Disease

The Heart Rhythm Society endorsed the document on October 2, 2019.

January 6, 2020—This document addresses only the follow-up of patients with established congenital heart disease using various cardiovascular imaging modalities. It is assumed that a complete anatomic cardiac diagnosis has been established by a qualified clinician using 1 or more modalities. The goal of this document is to determine the modalities that may be reasonable for a specific indication and not to designate the single best modality or the rank order of modalities. For each indication, the rating reflects whether the imaging modality is reasonable for the patient according to the appropriate use definition.
