Abstract

An experiment was conducted to characterize the heating pattern or specific absorption rate (SAR) of multipolar radiofrequency (RF) ablation catheters under several electrode configurations. The electrode configurations are unipolar, bipolar, and hybrid configuration. Results revealed significant differences in the catheter SAR pattern across the different configurations.
