A Microwave Sensor to Aid in the Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias
Bob Allison, Professor, Radiation Oncology and Biophysics , Eastern Virginia Medical School,
A microwave radiometer has been developed and integrated into the tip of a radiofrequency ablation catheter. The radiometer measures subsurface heart tissue temperature during ablation. This temperature measurement provides the electrophysiologist with previously unavailable real-time treatment feedback increasing the safety and efficacy of the procedure. Design of the device and some challenges of a startup technology venture will be discussed.
