Integration of MRI-derived scar maps with electroanatomical mapping (EAM) has implications for catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia and for targeting the scarred regions. The purpose of this study was to compare the potentially arrhythmogenic regions and characterize the relationship and morphology between chronic myocardial scar detectable by multi-contrast late enhancement (MCLE) MRI and EAM of endocardial substrate obtained with a real-time MR-guided electrophysiology system.
