As the volume and complexity of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) continue to rise, there is increasing attention directed at reducing exposure to ionizing radiation. This has led to the emergence of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) as a stand-alone imaging modality guiding AF ablation. In addition to directing transseptal puncture, ICE may be used to identify left atrial structures and to guide the manipulation of catheters. ICE may also be used to visualize the esophagus in… CONTINUE READING
