BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and atrial ablation procedures currently lack a noninvasive imaging modality for reliable treatment planning and monitoring. Electromechanical wave imaging (EWI) is an ultrasound-based method that has previously been shown to be capable of noninvasively and transmurally mapping the activation sequence of the heart in animal studies by estimating and imaging the electromechanical wave, that is, the transient strains occurring in response to the… CONTINUE READING
