The recent role of delayed enhancement (scar) MR imaging in evaluating post catheter ablation left atrial lesions has been well documented and correlated with clinical outcome. In this abstract we describe and discuss our T2-Weighted (oedema) findings alongside DE quantification post ablation and correlate this to clinical outcome.
