Current Role And Future Prospects Of Magnetic Resonance Imaging In The Field Of Atrial Fibrillation Ablation


Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice, and catheter ablation of AF has become a first-line treatment for symptomatic drug-refractory AF. However, this is a complex procedure and recurrences after a single ablation procedure are frequent. New technologies are needed to simplify the procedure and improve results, and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has emerged as a useful tool to stratify the risk of recurrence, guide the ablation procedure, and monitor the post-ablation remodeling process. This review summarizes the current role of CMR in the field of AF ablation and offers a perspective on its future potential.
