The CardioInsight™ Noninvasive 3D Mapping System works to capture a detailed, 3-D map of a cardiac arrhythmia. Before CardioInsight, heart rhythm information was collected by a noninvasive surface electrocardiogram (ECG) or by an invasive catheter mapping procedure2.
To collect heart rhythm information via an ECG, sensors are placed on the chest where they record the heart's electrical activity1.
This method gives a highly detailed map of the location of the rhythm disorder but requires the patient to undergo a heart catheterisation procedure under light sedation. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the groin area, and a catheter is advanced through a blood vessel to the heart.2
The CardioInsight system can be used in a non-invasive diagnostic procedure. Potential risks of the entire procedure should be adequately considered for each patient which include radiation exposure and time required for signal collection.
*This is one clinician's experience. Results may vary.
4. Once the heart maps are generated by the system, the physician will analyse the maps.
