EP Mapping and Imaging Systems

This channel page contains news on new technology innovations for electrophysiology (EP) mapping and imaging systems used to guide transcatheter cardiac ablation procedures. These systems use mapping catheters that contain electrodes that measure the electrical activity of the cardiac tissue. This is transferred into mapping system software where a 3D model is created of the heart, a color-coded overlay showing the electrical waves generated during each heart beat, the touch points where the tissue was mapped, and showing the location of the catheter inside the heart. Tissue identified as having unhealthy electrical activity that is cause an arrhythmia can then be ablated directly or isolated using an ablation catheter to cause small burns/scar tissue that block electrical signals.
