BD-05: 3D catheter localization for ablation in the heart by means of biplanar fluoroscopy

Atrial fibrillation is the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia, with around one million sufferers in Germany alone. This specific form of cardiac arrhythmia is associated with an increased risk of strokes, the development of cardiac insufficiency as well as general cardiovascular morbidity.

X-ray-guided catheter ablation represents an effective approach to treating atrial fibrillation. With this process, a three-dimensional superimposed image can be calculated from a pre-operative dataset (e.g.
