Objective: Noninvasive electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI) is used for obtaining high-resolution images of the electrical activity of the heart, and is a powerful method with the potential to detect certain arrhythmias. However, there is no 'best' lead configuration in the literature to measure the torso potentials. This paper evaluates ECGI reconstructions using various reduced leadset configurations, explores whether one can find a common reduced leadset configuration that can accurately reconstruct the electrograms for datasets with different pacing sites, and compares two activation time estimation methods.

Multielectrode venous catheter mapping as a high quality constraint for electrocardiographic inverse solution
Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; YILMAZ, BÜLENT; Brooks, DH (Elsevier BV, 2002-01-01)
A persistent challenge in solving inverse problems in electrocardiography is the application of suitable constraints to the calculation of cardiac sources. Whether one formulates the inverse problem in terms of epicardial potentials or activation wavefronts, the problem is physically ill-posed and hence results in numerically unstable computations. Suitable physiological constraints applied with appropriate weighting can recover useful inverse solutions. However, it is often difficult to determine the best ...
Evaluation of 3D printed carotid anatomical models in planning carotid artery stenting
Gocer, Hakan; Durukan, Ahmet Baris; Tunc, Osman; Naseri, Erdinc; Ercan, Ertugrul (Baycinar Tibbi Yayincilik, 2020-04-01)
Background: We aimed to investigate the potential role of three-dimensional printed anatomical models in pre-procedural planning, practice, and selection of carotid artery stent and embolic protection device size and location.
Simultaneous mapping of endocardium and epicardium from multielectrode intrachamber and intravenous catheters: a computer simulation-based validation
Baysoy, Engin; Cunedioglu, Ugur; Yilmaz, Buelent (Elsevier BV, 2010-01-01)
A multielectrode basket-shaped contact catheter (MBC) provides simultaneous recordings of unipolar or bipolar electrograms from within the heart chambers Another catheter-based mapping approach uses the multielectrode intravenous catheters (MIVCs), which are widely used to diagnose and treat supraventricular arrhythmias It is also known that mapping techniques are usually limited to one surface at a time Therefore, an approach that can be used for simultaneous mapping of left and right endocardial surfaces ...

Kvitting, JPE; Bothe, Wolfgang; Göktepe, Serdar; Rausch, Manuel; Swanson, Julia; Kuhl, Ellen; Ingels, Neil; Miller, Craig (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2010-10-26)
Background-The dynamic changes of anterior mitral leaflet (AML) curvature are of primary importance for optimal left ventricular filling and emptying but are incompletely characterized.
Automatic 3D segmentation of individual facial muscles using unlabeled prior information
Rezaeitabar, Yousef; Ulusoy, İlkay (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-01-01)
Purpose Segmentation of facial soft tissues is required for surgical planning and evaluation, but this is laborious using manual methods and has been difficult to achieve with digital segmentation methods. A new automatic 3D segmentation method for facial soft tissues in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images was designed, implemented, and tested.
