The more precise the extent of atrial cardiomyopathy in patients can be measured, the better the selection of which patients should receive rhythm control therapy and which patients should receive rate control therapy. Prof. Mont discussed the developments in imaging tools that can be applied to discriminate between patients with AF. Echocardiography Everything starts by obtaining a good echo. Measuring the left atrium size with echocardiographic imaging is a simple, reproducible, and ...
