CEI 2022 Seminar Series
We are very excited to announce the third series of presentations in the Consortium for ECGI 2022 Seminar Series. The topic of this seminar will be arrhythmogenesis and its relation to ECGI. With this seminar series, we hope to organize presentations from leaders in the field of cardiac electrophysiological and modelling thereof.
See the archive page for more information on the past seminars, and stay tuned for the upcoming seminars!

Title: “Challenging non-invasive electrocardiographic imaging: Combined activation and repolarization mapping to identify and destroy the arrhythmogenic substrate”.
Abstract: “The initiation of reentrant ventricular arrhythmias depends on the temporal and spatial concurrence of a substrate and a trigger. Preventive treatment is often aiming to pharmacologically or anatomically altering the arrhythmogenic substrate. Ablative procedures require the identification of the susceptible tissue(s) by invasive activation mapping of the reentrant pathway. This is not always possible, because the induced arrhythmia is not the same as the clinically significant arrhythmia, is not monomorphic, is not sustained or is not hemodynamically tolerated. In these cases, the target (‘border zone’) tissue is defined morphologically (by imaging techniques and electroanatomical mapping) during a paced rhythm. An alternative functional method to identify the susceptible arrhythmogenic substrate by combined activation/repolarization mapping without the need to induce the arrhythmia will be presented. Non-invasive electrocardiographic imaging allows combined activation and repolarization mapping and may thus support the localization of the susceptible tissue and guide its subsequent destruction.”

Title: “ECG-Imaging, validation and delineation of substrate for ventricular tachycardia”.
Abstract: “In this talk, I will present our work focusing on using ECG imaging for clinical applications. These include validation studies conducted analysing data collected during electrophysiological studies for ventricular tachycardia ablation as well as studies for cardiac conditions (e.g. Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, cardiac amyloidosis etc). We report on agreement with invasive electro-anatomical mapping parameters (activation, repolarization, ventricular tachycardia exit sites, scar delineation, etc) as well as on ECGI integration with structural parameters from cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.”
