INTRODUCTION Lesion placement and transmurality are critical factors in the success of cardiac transcatheter radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatments for supraventricular arrhythmias. This study investigated the capabilities of catheter transducer based acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) ultrasound imaging for quantifying ablation lesion dimensions. METHODS AND RESULTS RFA lesions were created in vitro in porcine ventricular myocardium and imaged with an intracardiac ultrasound catheter… CONTINUE READING
