Image Fusion Applications: Precision Medicine for Structural Heart Diseases
Modern catheter technology allows patients with defective heart valves or other types of structural heart disease to be treated successfully, even at an advanced age. The best possible ultrasound diagnostics before and during procedures enable optimum interventions while also reducing radiation dose and supporting maximum safety.

Effective Exclusion of Myocardial Ischemia with Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A 42-year-old female with shortness of breath and atypical thoracical pain was referred to the MR unit for adenosine stress CMR to exclude significant coronary artery disease. The patient anatomy did not allow stress echocardiography and ionizing radiation was avoided due to her age.

Cryoballoon Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation
A 52-year-old male patient was admitted for ablation of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (Afib). After radiofrequency ablation of an accessory pathway 10 years earlier, he had now been suffering from frequent episodes of tachyarrhythmias for several years.
