Initial computer simulation and animal data support the feaibility of a method of guiding radio-frequency ablation utilizing body surface electrocardiographic (ECG) data. Further studies are needed to demonstrate the practicality of such an approach. This method aims and promises to contribute to the effort of rapidly and accurately guiding the ablation catheter to the site of the origin of the arrhythmia.
