Combination of SPECT, Cardiac MRI Helps Guide VT Ablation

Adding functional imaging to structural imaging of patients with ventricular tachycardia (VT) has the potential to improve current VT ablation strategies, according to new research from the University of Maryland. In the study, researchers followed 15 patients who were scheduled for ablation for VT. Each patient underwent imaging with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and MRI, as well as high-resolution bipolar voltage mapping. These three mapping tools assessed various adaptations found in VT — abnormal innervation, tissue scarring, and low-voltage area. In all...Read full article
