Abstract
In this paper, we present a sensor guided ablation procedure of highly motile left atrium. It uses a system which automatically registers the 4D heart model with the position sensor on the catheter, and visualizes the heart model and the position of the catheter together in real time. With this system clinicians can easily map the motile left atrium shape and see where the catheter is inside it, therefore greatly improve the efficiency of the ablation operation.
