The RHYTHMIA HDx Mapping System is a 3D mapping and navigation system and is an effective diagnostic tool for cardiac electrophysiology (EP) procedures. It provides real-time visualization of intracardiac catheters and a display of 3D cardiac maps in selected formats in minimally invasive procedures to assist the physician in identifying the origin of the arrhythmia within the heart chamber. As a physician probes the heart with a catheter, the system generates an accurate anatomical model of the chamber. High-performance rendering and algorithmic techniques are vital to creating a stunning view and providing the physician with instant feedback.
