1. The Use of Intracardiac Echocardiography and Other Intracardiac Imaging Tools to Guide Noncoronary Cardiac Interventions

    The limitations of standard fluoroscopy have led to the development of improved imaging techniques to guide noncoronary cardiac interventions. Imaging tools that are used in the interventional laboratory can be categorized as invasive and noninvasive. Noninvasive cardiac imaging tools include ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. These modalities can generate high-resolution images of the heart and are increasingly being used to guide cardiac interventions. Despite these advances, there remains a strong role for invasive imaging tools in the interventional laboratories. Such invasive imaging tools include transesophageal echocardiography, intracardiac echocardiography, intracardiac endoscopy, and electroanatomic mapping systems. Despite the risks inherent ...
