Conventional fluoroscopy is the main imaging technology that allows for intracardiac device manipulation in a variety of interventional cardiovascular procedures. Besides the associated x-ray exposure for patients and staff, that technology only provides 2D orientations. Therefore, 3D mapping technologies have been introduced to facilitate spatial orientation within complex cardiac anatomies. Especially in interventional electrophysiology (EP), theses technologies have become clinical routine… CONTINUE READING
