Atrial Flutter Ablation Using MediGuideTM Non-fluoroscopic Catheter Tracking System: A Novel Technology to Reduce Radiation Exposure


We describe the first case of cardiac arrhythmia ablation with the novel MediGuideTM non-fluoroscopic catheter tracking system in North America. This new technology uses electromagnetic field to track sensor integrated intracardiac electrophysiology catheters which are projected on pre-recorded fluoroscopy cine loops. This new technology permits catheter tracking in virtual biplane fluoroscopy and enhances spatial resolution of conventional 3D mapping systems while drastically reducing radiation exposure.
