The present invention employs ultrasonic energy delivered to myocardial tissue at frequencies sufficient to destroy the myocardial tissue implicated in the arrhythmic. More specifically, the present invention comprises an ultrasonic transducer mounted on a distal end of a catheter and at least one e ...

Ding Sheng He, Michael Bosnos, José M Guillén Rodríguez, Frank I Marcus: System and method for predicting lesion size shortly after onset of RF energy delivery. The Arizona Board of Regents on Behalf of the University of Arizona, Boston Scientific Scimed, Faegre Baker Daniels, May 3, 2016: US09326814

Lesion size or volume prediction shortly after the onset of an ablation procedure can inform or control the ablation procedure. The prediction and/or control is made without regard to an actual detected temperature in the vicinity of the ablation electrodes. As a consequence, the system has utility ...
