Imaging technologies play a vital role in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, and the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute (TCAI) has the most advanced technology available.
Our state-of-the-art imaging technologies include:
- 3D ultrasound integration, which combines real-time intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) imaging with advanced 3D mapping systems.
- Advanced rotational angiography, which works with a robotically actuated X-ray system to provide high-resolution CT scans onsite within the electrophysiology laboratory suite.
Physicians and laboratory staff from around the world come to TCAI to learn about new technologies and imaging techniques, such as ICE for optimization of biventricular pacing (BiV) lead placement. This innovative approach to cardiac resynchronization therapy is useful in treating patients with extremely compromised heart function.
