Cardiac ablation and mapping

Mapping systems

Cardiac mapping enables physicians to characterize abnormal rhythms of the heart by producing biatrial and biventricular 3-D cardiac maps.

The CardioInsight™ solution

The CardioInsight™ Noninvasive 3D Mapping System is a noninvasive mapping system that collects chest ECG signals and combines these signals with CT scan data to produce and display simultaneous, biatrial and biventricular, 3-D cardiac maps. The mapping enables physicians to characterize abnormal rhythms of the heart.

Noninvasive map without catheterization

Map anytime outside the EP lab throughout patient care pathway. Supports flexible patient management, procedural planning, and lab use.

3-D, simultaneous, multi-chamber mapping

Captures and panoramically displays rhythms that span multiple chambers or vary in cycle length, such as atrial fibrillation (AF).

Insight with a single beat

Produce maps with one beat's worth of data for infrequent, unstable rhythms, such as ventricular tachycardia (VT) or specific supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs).

Gain a new perspective.

The CardioInsight™ system is based on the unique and patented Electrocardiographic Mapping (ECM) platform that combines body surface electrical data with heart-torso anatomical data to provide simultaneous, biatrial and biventricular 3-D maps of the heart's electrical activity.

  • Noninvasive epicardial maps
  • Unipolar electrograms
  • 1,000 samples per second per channel
  • 6.8 ± 2 mm epicardial resolution

The CardioInsight™ system uses a proprietary, single-use, disposable multi-electrode vest to capture electrical signals from the body surface. The CardioInsight™ software provides various cardiac signal analyses and displays interactive 3-D color maps including activation, composite and phase maps.*

Cardiac mapping process

The CardioInsight™ system provides the unique opportunity to enable advanced cardiac mapping outside the EP lab.

  1. Prep the patient and apply the vest
  2. Obtain CT scan and record signals
  3. Combine CT and signal data to create maps
  4. Analyze maps and plan next steps in patient care
