This paper presents an in vitro temperature mapping study of bovine cardiac tissue during radiofrequency ablation. The objectives were to: (i) develop a technique for measuring the spatial and temporal temperature distribution in the tissue and in the blood during ablation, and (ii) use the temperature measurements to characterize the effects of fluid flow on lesion dimensions, ablation efficiency, and temperature distributions. In vitro ablation (20 W, 60 s) of bovine cardiac tissue was… CONTINUE READING
