ADAS-VT (Automatic Detection of Arrhythmic Substrate) is a product intended for the identification of arrhythmia substrate and the planning of Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) ablation procedures using cardiac MRI.
ADAS-VT addresses the catheter ablation treatment needs of the electrophysiologist: before, during and after the intervention.
This case example (courtesy of Dr Antonio Berruezo, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Spain) shows the MRI data of a patient with VT. ADAS-VT was used to obtain the LV, RV and aorta, and to detect potential channels in the LV. There are several channels detected (blue area shows border-zone corridor).
The planning data, including the channels and other relevant myocardial information, was exported from ADAS-VT to files in formats accepted by EP navigation system. These files were imported into the catheter navigation system and used as assistance to the electroanatomical mapping and the ablation.
ADAS-VT data for the patient above serves as guide the perform the electroanatomical mapping. The left window shows the EAM data, and right window the ADAS-VT.
ADAS-VT can load data from the EP navigation system and be used to compare MRI information to electro-anatomical data.
ADAS-VT is a standalone Windows-based post-processing software solution for cardiac Late Gadolinium-enhanced DICOM images.
ADAS 3D is developed in partnership with Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Spain.
ADAS-VT is being evaluated clinically in collaboration with:
