Panoramic Optical Imaging of Cardiac Arrhythmias

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Optical mapping of electrophysiological activity with voltage-sensitive dyes has emerged as an invaluable tool for the investigation of arrhythmia mechanisms in isolated hearts. However, traditional optical mapping techniques using a single optical detector are inherently limited by the two-dimensional field of view of the mapped region. To overcome this limitation, panoramic optical mapping techniques have been developed to image electrophysiological activity from the entire epicardial surface of intact hearts. This chapter will discuss the methods and techniques developed for panoramic imaging as well as review important physiological insights gained using this technique
