MRI Anatomy for Cardiac Mapping and Ablation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Cardiac MRI has emerged as a useful imaging technique for peri and intra operative anatomical delineation and effectiveness of complex ablation procedures particularly atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. MRI's were initially used as pre procedure imaging with image integration to the electroanatomical mapping systems. However, recent system are capable of using MRI during ablation procedures to visualize and monitor ablation lesion. Future application and direction of MRI in interventional electrophysiology is discussed.
