Local Impedance Measurements in the Atria - A Comparative Simulation Study
Sketch of Contents
Local impedance measurements in the atria and ventricles have been introduced recently to assess ablation lesion formation. A secondary field of application for impedance measurements is the estimation of substrate properties. Unfortunately, the measurement of local impedance in the atria is prone to interferences that are not yet understood well. In this thesis, local impedance measurement will be studied ex vivo to deduce the achievable benefit in future clinical settings.
