  • One of the main shortcomings of interventional electrophysiology (EP) is its inability to generate sufficient soft tissue contrast for intra-procedural visualization of the myocardium and the surrounding tissue, using conventional imaging techniques. Interventional cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) aims at bringing about significant improvements to the complex and decisive EP interventions far beyond the capabilities of currently available supportive imaging techniques used to surmount the drawbacks of fluoroscopy, as MRI not onlyOne of the main shortcomings of interventional electrophysiology (EP) is its inability to generate sufficient soft tissue contrast for intra-procedural visualization of the myocardium and the surrounding tissue, using conventional imaging techniques. Interventional cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) aims at bringing about significant improvements to the complex and decisive EP interventions far beyond the capabilities of currently available supportive imaging techniques used to surmount the drawbacks of fluoroscopy, as MRI not only allows of precise three-dimensional exposure of the cardiovascular morphology, but also proves to be a promising technique exclusively suitable for direct visualization of arrhythmogenic substrate and therapeutic effects. The major challenge posed by clinical …show moreshow less
