Siemens' AcuNav V 3-D intracardiac echo (ICE) catheter offers detailed, live 3-D images of the interior of the heart. This video shows an example of the catheter imaging the left atrial appendage (LAA). The technology may play a role in guiding and properly seating transcatheter LAA occluders. The technology was shown as a work-in-progress during ACC 2012.
