Interpreting Optical Mapping Recordings in the Ischemic Heart: A Combined Experimental and Computational Investigation

Abstract:

The occlusion of a coronary artery results in myocardial ischemia, significantly disturbing the heart’s normal electrical behavior, with potentially lethal consequences, such as sustained arrhythmias. Biologists attempt to shed light on underlying mechanisms with optical voltage mapping, a widely used technique for non-contact visualization of surface electrical activity. However, this method suffers from signal distortion due to fluorescent photon scattering within the biological tissue. The...
