Electromechanical Wave Imaging with machine learning for automated isochrone generation.

IEEE Trans Med Imaging 2021 Apr 21;PP. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Standard Electromechanical Wave Imaging isochrone generation relies on manual selection of zero-crossing (ZC) locations on incremental strain curves for a number of pixels in the segmented myocardium for each echocardiographic view and patient. When considering large populations, this becomes a time-consuming process, that can be limited by inter-observer variability and operator bias. In this study, we developed and optimized an automated ZC selection algorithm, towards a faster more robust isochrone generation approach. Read More

Iatrogenic ventricular fibrillation caused by inappropriately synchronized cardioversion in a patient with pre-excited atrial fibrillation: A case report.

J Cardiol Cases 2021 Jan 6;23(1):31-34. Epub 2020 Oct 6.

Department of Cardiology, National Hospital Organization Kyoto Medical Center, Kyoto, Japan.

Direct-current (DC) cardioversion is effective at terminating arrhythmias in an emergency. During treatment, energy delivery synchronizing with the QRS complex is essential to avoid ventricular fibrillation (VF) caused by a shock on the T wave, which is the vulnerable period of ventricular repolarization. However, distinguishing the QRS from the T wave is difficult in some patients with abnormal, irregular, and varying QRS complexes. Read More
