A realistic model of a canine torso which includes extensive detail about skeletal muscle layer thickness and fiber orientation is compared with two other uniformly anisotropic models. A transfer coefficient is developed which relates torso potentials to epicardial potentials for a given anisotropic skeletal muscle layer thickness and muscle fiber orientation. The transfer coefficient is valid for any set of measured epicardial potentials and is independent of the conductivity of the heart… CONTINUE READING
