Phantom Assessment of Unshielded Magnetocardiography Repeatability, Precision and Accuracy in Electric Sources Localization

Authors: Gianmarco Lombardi, Anna Rita Sorbo, Riccardo Fenici and Donatella Brisinda

Abstract: Pre-interventional knowledge of arrhythmogenic substrate location may reduce interventional time and arrhythmias ablation risks. Magnetocardiographic Mapping (MCG) is a contactless method for non-invasive localization of intracardiac sources used for Three-Dimensional (3D) Electro-Anatomical Imaging (EAI) of arrhythmogenic substrates.
