Intra Cardiac Echocardiography

Intra Cardiac Echocardiography (ICE) is an imaging technique that allows physicians to get a clear picture of the inner workings of the heart. A small ultrasound probe is placed into a vein in the groin and then threaded into the area of the heart being worked on. ICE may be used as a diagnostic tool, or for guiding the physician during minimally invasive procedures inside the heart such as stent placement, or for the repair of a hole in the heart such as atrial septal defect. The use of intracardiac echo at UNC makes heart-imaging procedures much easier on the patient. Where previously a probe was inserted into the throat, causing great discomfort for the patient, the ICE procedure is completely painless and involves only the use of a local anesthetic at the site of insertion.

  • Atrial fibrillation – pulmonary vein ablation
  • Ventricular arrhythmias
  • Atrial flutter and macroreentrant tachycardia
  • Atrial fibrillation – linar lesions
