Electrophysiology and Multislice CT
According to Saremi F et al in Radiographics. 2007 Nov-Dec;27(6):1539-65,
"Given its capacity to provide relevant anatomic information in exquisite detail, multidetector computed tomography (CT) has the potential to allow faster and more accurate placement of intracardiac ablation catheters and pacemaker leads relative to the anatomy of interest. High-resolution reformatted images from 64-detector CT data provide accurate anatomic information for locating important landmarks relative to the cardiac conduction system or to current electrophysiologic interventions and cardiac resynchronization therapy."
Seems like yet another upcoming application of Cardiac MDCT.
