MRI use for atrial tissue characterization in arrhythmias and for EP procedure guidance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We review the utilization of magnetic resonance imaging methods for classifying atrial tissue properties that act as a substrate for common cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation. We then review state-of-the-art methods for mapping this substrate as a predicate for treatment, as well as methods used to ablate the electrical pathways that cause arrhythmia and restore patients to sinus rhythm.
