Royal Brompton cardiac morphology

The cardiac morphology unit at Royal Brompton Hospital specialises in the structure of the heart from the fetus through to adulthood. Professor S Yen Ho, Dr Karen P McCarthy and Dr Jan Lukas Robertus have developed 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 healthcare professionals; research – translational and observational; and diagnostic analysis of complex cardiac cases.

Our courses

Royal Brompton cardiac morphology runs various courses during the year, many of which are in association with other departments.

Courses include: 

  • cardiac morphology applied to cross-sectional imaging
  • congenital heart disease in fetal
  • paediatric and adult patients
  • cardiac surgery
  • cardiac electrophysiology.
