Conference paper


The WolfF-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome is characterized by the accessory conduction pathway (AP) of excitation between atria and ventricles. To find a functional localization [1, 2] of the AP, noninvasive magnetocardiographic (MCG) mapping data were used with the current dipole source in different volume conductor models.
