From the American College of Nuclear Medicine

The IMPACT Registry is a repository of information for heart catheterizations for congenital heart disease regardless of age and also the catheterizations for acquired heart disease in children. The registry collects information on outcomes, provides quality improvement opportunities for participants, provides reports to participants comparing their results with national results, compares the volume of catheter work done at an institution with the frequency of adverse events, and provides information that may be helpful in evaluating the use of medical devices and treatment options.
