MRI evaluation of RF ablation scarring for atrial fibrillation treatment
Medical Imaging 2007: Visualization and Image-Guided Procedures
This study presents a multi-modality image registration method that evaluates left atrial scarring after radiofrequency (RF) ablation for pulmonary vein (PV) isolation. Our group has recently developed a delayed enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI) method with the potential to visualize and monitor non-invasively post-ablation scarring in the left atrium and the PV ostia. We wished to compare the 3D configuration of scarring in the DE-MRI image and the ablation points recorded bydoi:10.1117/12.710323 dblp:conf/miigp/IshiharaNWLJHMP07 fatcat:432y37vku5dajjs2e4ebeghxr4
