    Cardiac computed tomography, also known as CCT, has become more widely used in the evaluation of patients of all ages who have congenital heart disease (CHD), including children and adults. This is in part due to technological advancements in CCT as well as an increase in the number of adults who have palliated CHD. Echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, and cardiac catheterization all benefit from having this modality as an additional option. In comparison to other modalities, CCT is less intrusive, and there is a lower likelihood that it will need anaesthesia. Additionally, it may provide distinctive diagnostic information. To perform optimum CCT imaging, it is very necessary to have in-depth understanding of the specific patient's cardiac anatomy, physiology, surgical repair, and any potential remaining lesions. In this exhaustive analysis, the use of CCT both preoperatively and postoperatively for the most prevalent CHD diagnosis is broken down in great depth. In addition to this, one of our goals is to bring attention to several novel and cutting-edge technologies that have just become commercially accessible and may further improve CCT imaging for patients with CHD.
