Prototype Software Visualizes Contact-Force Data in 3-D Anatomic Heart Model

May 4, 2011 – Endosense and Siemens Healthcare have completed a prototype software software software integrating the contact-force data provided by Endosense’s TactiCath force-sensing ablation catheter1 with Siemens’ electrophysiology solutions.

The new application, which was created under a joint development agreement, was designed to allow electrophysiologists to view catheter tip-to-tissue contact force within a fluoroscopically-enabled, three-dimensional anatomic heart model during catheter ablation procedures.

“The ability to visualize contact force in real time represents a significant step forward in the catheter ablation treatment of cardiac arrhythmias,” said Dipen Shah, M.D., University Hospital of Geneva, who will soon demonstrate the technology’s feasibility by performing the first patient case. “Using this new software, we gain the ability to not only measure and control contact force in real time but also view it within the three-dimensional context of the heart anatomy. I believe the enhanced visualization will allow me and my fellow electrophysiologists to perform catheter ablation with an even greater level of insight and confidence, ultimately translating into procedures that are more effective and safe.”
