In this work we present the application of EPT conductivity mapping in two isolated perfused pig hearts. Conductivity values of normally perfused heart tissue were compared to values in ischemic regions after a blockade of the left anterior descending artery (LAD). It could be shown that ischemic ventricular tissue is less conductive than healthy myocardium.
