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.
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.
