Bicuspid aortic valve is a common congenital heart defect, often diagnosed incidentally or as a consequence of an associated condition. Patients with this anomaly are at increased risk for a variety of cardiovascular complications and require surveillance for associated valvular and aortic diseases. While echocardiogram is typically the initial diagnostic modality, MRI can be a valuable adjunct for more comprehensive examination of both the aorta and aortic valve.
