In brief: Need details to say

Congenital heart disease is a broad topic.
Often a sound wave tewt (echocardiogram ) is all that is needed. Choice of the appropiate test or tests depends on the cardiologist's thinking about what the likely diagnosis might be.

Mri not expose the patient to radiation and it is more specific for deliniation of the anatomy as well as the function provided the patient does not have a pacemaker to a defibrillator or iron containing material.

In brief: Depends

History, physical, echocardiogram, ekg are the early items.
Then guidance by your cardiologist. Both are safe and show anatomy.
