Abstract

Body surface mapping is a new electrocardiographic method which consists in displaying the distribution of equipotential lines on the entire surface of the torso at a number of time instants during the cardiac cycle. It is widely recognised that cardiac electromaps provide more information on normal and abnormal intracardiac electrical events, than can be obtained from traditional 12-leads electrocardiograms.
