This special issue aims to provide an overview of imaging analysis techniques involved in Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) research. Although medical advancements have significantly improved the survival rates and prognosis of children with CHD, increasing evidence suggests a vital interplay between the heart and the brain, with cardiovascular diseases playing a crucial role in various brain disorders, such as cognitive impairments. Imaging technology plays a pivotal role in analyzing the relationship between the heart and the brain. Therefore, the goal of this Special Issue of Congenital Heart Disease will focus on imaging analysis techniques that might be involved in CHD-related studies, such as MRI, CT, and ultrasound. The specific topics cover four main parts:

1) Imaging segmentation and generation techniques for the heart or brain;

2) Image analysis in investigating the mechanisms of CHD-related neurodevelopmental disorders;

3) Image-based identification and prediction methods for CHD-related neurodevelopmental disorders;

4) Imaging analysis techniques focused on studying the relationship between the heart and brain.
