Dr. Vadim Fedorov at Ohio State University developed the technique to visualize electrical activity of the heart in 3D. He uses high-speed imaging system, MiCAM05 Ultima four camera system, and fluorescence macroscope, THT. The new mapping technique can capture 40,000 recordings, which is much more than current clinical imaging, through the heart and at various depths. This allows for seeing more accurately how electrical activity spreads and which areas are responsible.
