Minimal and No Fluoroscopy Ablations

Dr. Osorio's main interest and expertise is the use of mapping technologies to minimize or completely eliminate the use of fluoroscopy (X-ray) in EP procedures - reducing risk to patients and staff. He has performed hundreds of ablations using just a few seconds of fluoroscopy and in some cases no fluoroscopy at all. He is one of the few physicians using these techniques in the US.
