Full evaluation and results at every visit 

At each visit, patients may obtain an evaluation by a pediatric cardiologist, an ECG by a pediatric-trained technician, and an echocardiogram by technicians specializing in congenital heart defects. The team will provide a full evaluation and results during the visit.

Advancing heart care

Connecticut Children's is researching early markers of heart muscle function abnormalities. By detecting problems early, we anticipate the ability to target treatments that prevent further heart muscle problems before patients become high-risk. Learn more about our research »
