Use of MRI in Catheter Ablation is Atrial Fibrillation Breakthrough

A team at the University of Utah School of Medicine is pioneering the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in catheter ablation for treatment of atrial fibrillation. The major complication rate using MRI has been 12 times better than the norm. By the end of the year, they expect to perform the first catheter ablation […]
