The cardiac morphology unit at Royal Brompton Hospital specialises in the structure of the heart from the fetus through to adulthood. It is an internationally recognised centre for research and education in congenital heart disease ('holes in the heart') and acquired heart disease.
Our mission: To help in the understanding of congenital and pathological cardiac anatomy.
Cardiac morphology at the Royal Brompton Hospital has a long tradition of providing educational resources such as hands-on short courses and training for health care professionals; research – translational and observational; and diagnostic analysis of complex cardiac cases.
Brompton cardiac morphology runs various courses during the year, many of which are in association with other departments.
- cardiac morphology applied to cross-sectional imaging
- congenital heart disease in fetal
- paediatric and adult patients
- cardiac surgery
- cardiac electrophysiology.
