Acutus dipole density EP mapping for ablation procedures.

The FDA recently cleared high-speed Acutus Medical's AcQMap High Resolution image and mapping system and the AcQMap 3-D Imaging and Mapping Catheter.  detects and displays both standard voltage-based and higher resolution dipole density (charge-source) maps. The system combines ultrasound anatomy construction with an ability to map the electrical-conduction of each heartbeat to identify complex arrhythmias across the entire atrial chamber. Following each ablation treatment, the heart can be re-mapped in seconds to continually visualize any changes from the prior mapping.
