  • A closed prolate ellipsoid was used to approximate the surface of the Rush torso model to permit recovery of the site and orientation of known dipoles in 15 cardiac locations. Localization was found to be reasonably close, usually within 2 cm. When body surface potential maps of 37 subjects with right ventricular pacemakers were similarly treated, the discrepancy between known pacemaker site and the site of earliest activation was relatively large (mean, greater than 4 cm) and rapidly increased… CONTINUE READING
