Registration of 3D computed tomographic images with interventional systems: Implications for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation

Abstract

Despite the great promise catheter ablation offers in the treatment of complex arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (AF), long procedure times and somewhat suboptimal results hinder the widespread use of this technique. As fluoroscopy does not provide contrast differentiation between the area of interest and the surrounding structures, there is a lack of… (More)
