How do I do an afib ablation? Presentation for electrophysiology fellows of techniques to minimize radiation and complications

Atrial fibrillation Ablation is a procedure that can significantly improve the quality of life of patients with afib. Traditionally, radiation is used to visualize catheters. Radiation exposure has its own problems and today newer techniques are available to minimize and eliminate it.
This was a presentation for an audience of fellows in training in electrophysiology. The goal was to raise awareness of the dangers of radiation exposure for patients and staff, and teach techniques to minimize it.
