Screening for atrial fibrillation: a European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) consensus document endorsed by the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS), and Sociedad Latinoamericana de Estimulación Cardíaca y Electrofisiología (SOLAECE)

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, occurring in 1–2% of the general population. Its prevalence varies between continents and ethnicity, but the estimated number of patients with AF worldwide might be between 30 and 100 million.1 This prevalence is expected to increase significantly in the next 30–50 years due to an ageing population, and increasing risk factors to develop AF, including arterial hypertension and diabetes.2–5 In all populations studied, both prevalence and incidence are higher in men than in women and increase with age.6

Combination of principal component analysis and optical-flow motion compensation for improved cardiac MR thermometry

The use of magnetic resonance (MR) thermometry for the monitoring of thermal ablation is rapidly expanding. However, this technique remains challenging for the monitoring of the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia by radiofrequency ablation due to the heart displacement with respiration and contraction. Recent studies have addressed this problem by compensating in-plane motion in real-time with optical-flow based tracking technique.
