OBJECTIVE: To precisely visualize cardiac anatomic structures and simultaneously depict electro-mechanical events for the purpose of precise underblood intervention. METHODS: Intracardiac high-resolution tissue Doppler imaging was used to map real time myocardial contractions in response to electrical activation within the anatomic structure of the cardiac conductive system using a canine open-chest model. RESULTS: The detailed inner anatomic structure of the cardiac conductive system at different sites (i.e., sino-atrial, atrial wall, atrial-ventricular node and ventricular wall) with the inside onset and propagation of myocardial velocity and acceleration induced by electrical activation was clearly visualized and quantitatively evaluated. CONCLUSION: The simultaneous single modality visualization of the anatomy, function and electrical events of the cardiac conductive system will foster target pacing and precision ablation.
