The first step to fixing your child’s heart condition is understanding what’s causing it. At Atrium Health Levine Children’s, our doctors use advanced technology to take high-resolution images of your child’s heart. This helps us create a custom care plan that gives every patient the best chance of living a happy, healthy life.

Imaging services

Levine Children’s state-of-the-art imaging technologies include:


An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. This non-invasive tool takes moving pictures of the heart so doctors can understand your child’s condition – without using radiation. We use echocardiograms to:

  • Diagnose structural and functional heart disease in the womb
  • Diagnose structural and functional heart disease in babies and children
  • Diagnose heart rhythm abnormalities in the womb
  • Monitor the heart before, during and after surgery

Our imaging specialists have spent decades evaluating every type of heart defect in kids of all ages. This expertise helps us pinpoint what’s causing your child’s condition, so we can help their heart team create the most effective treatment plan. Our imaging lab is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), which certifies that we provide top quality patient care.

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

We may use CT scans to examine your child's heart and better understand their condition. We’re one of the region’s only children’s hospitals offering cardiac MRI, which uses radio waves to take extremely detailed pictures of your child’s heart. Our congenital cardiac radiologists use this technology to create 2D and 3D images of your child’s heart. This gives our doctors insight into why your child’s heart and blood vessels might not work properly.

3D printing

Every pediatric heart condition is unique, and so is how we treat it. Because of this, some patients with complex conditions benefit when a 3D model is used as part of their care.

The Ganatra 3D Printing Laboratory at Atrium Health Levine Children’s is the only one in Charlotte with this technology. In addition to patient education, we use 3D models to better understand your child’s condition, plan for procedures, like interventional heart catheterizations and surgeries, and shape a treatment strategy specific to them.
