1. What is 3D intracardiac ultrasound?
Provides doctors with a three-dimensional map of the left atrium, pulmonary veins and esophagus during catheter ablations.

2. What are the advantages of this technology?
Using the technology, doctors can pinpoint the exact location to deliver treatment during catheter ablations, without jeopardizing the surrounding tissue. As a result, procedures using 3D intracardiac ultrasound are safer and more effective.

3. Will my insurance cover this?
Depending on the type of coverage, most commercial insurance carriers will pay the major share of the cost. You should always consult your insurance company to determine proper coverage.

4. Who should I contact with questions about Stereotaxis?
Feel free to consult your doctor.
