MRI + Ablation (219384)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most important arrhythmia in contemporary cardiology, and despite much progress, remain therapeutic challenges. Invasive electrical studies of the heart are often used in the diagnosis and therapy of arrhythmia. Many forms of arrhythmia can be cured by selective destruction of critical electrical pathways with catheter ablation.
