BACKGROUND Clinical cardiac volumetric measurement techniques are essential for assessing cardiac performance but produce significant inaccuracies in extrapolation of the volume of a three-dimensional (3D) object from two-dimensional images and lack the ability to associate cardiac electrical and mechanical activities. In this study, we tested the accuracy of cardiac volumetric measurements using a new catheter-based system. METHODS AND RESULTS The system uses magnetic technology to… CONTINUE READING
