Dr. Shenasa and his internationally renowned team of editors and contributors reflect all the breakthroughs that have been made in interventional electrophysiology and imaging technologies in recent years in this thoroughly updated guide to cardiac mapping. Over three previous editions, this book has established itself as the most comprehensive reference book on cardiac mapping. This thoroughly updated fourth edition focuses on new developments in the field such as new catheter-based techniques, new roles for mapping and a deepening understanding or new insights into how to best treat disorders such as AF and AT. The book is designed to appeal to trainees in cardiac electrophysiology as well as to more seasoned EPs who want the latest information on this fast-moving and increasingly important imaging modality. This useful resource for basic and clinical electrophysiologists illuminates the path to better and safer mapping. CONTENTS OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION Part 1. Historical Perspectives .
