Double-outlet right ventricle is a complex congenital heart disease that encompasses various common and rare subtypes. Surgical management of these patients needs to be individualized owing to extremely variable morphology and hemodynamics. Imaging plays a crucial role in determination and characterization of outflow tract morphology. The assessment of ventricular septal defect routability with identification of associated anomalies has therapeutic implications in these patients. Multislice computed tomography with advanced 3-dimensional postprocessing techniques and dose-reduction strategies is invaluable in defining the anatomy and morphology of double-outlet right ventricle with simultaneous assessment of associated anomalies.
