This talk presents some of the geometrical aspects involved in treating irregular heart beat rhythm (Arrythmia) using Carto 3 System. Carto 3 is a product of Biosense-Webster, a global leader in the science of diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders. CARTO 3 System enables accurate visualization of multiple catheters in a patient’s heart and pinpoints exact location/orientation of a catheter. During arrythmia procedure, a 3D electro-anatomical reconstruction of the heart is built and color coded with the electrical activity in the heart. In this talk, we'll introduce mesh processing algorithms and discuss industrial challenges encountered in the process of building and coloring geometrical reconstructions of the heart.
