Cardiac cryo-ablation is being increasingly used for
treatment of atrial fibrillation and ventricular
tachycardia. However, reported success rate of the
procedures is moderate and serious complications have
been observed. MRI has a potential to improve success
rate of cardiac cryo-ablations and reduce complications.
In this study, feasibility of real-time MRI guided
cardiac cryo-ablation procedure was studied.
