Cardiac MRI is a recommended option for patients who require analyses of dynamic cardiac flows, wall motion, ventricular volume, and ventricular function. Children's pediatric-trained radiologists work in concert with cardiologists to the tests. Imaging expert and pediatric cardiologist, Kelly Gleason Han, MD is one of a handful of cardiologists in the U.S. with a specialty in cardiac imaging, earned through a two-year, advanced imaging fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital / Harvard Medical School. Team members' expertise and training means tests can be obtained quickly (reducing the need for children to be still for prolonged periods) and be performed using less radiation.
Research studies are ongoing in all areas of the hospital and clinics. The cardiovascular team is actively publishing research and articles. In the past ten years, more than 40 articles have been published in peer reviewed publications.

Our annual Hearbeat 5K raises support for Children's cardiovascular program.
A’rringTon was born with a rare heart condition and spent much of his first year of life at Children’s Minnesota.
At Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we treat children, not diseases. The cardiovascular team knows that helping kids thrive physically is only part of our job. Helping patients and families feel more at ease emotionally is a big also part of what we do. Our first meeting with you sets the tone for everything to come, so we make it as informative and comforting as we can.
