Abstract

The 3D cardiac arrhythmia visualization model in this paper was developed to assist medical students and fellows in understanding the underlying electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias and their treatments. In this detailed cardiac model, the user can freely move to any position of the heart and observe it from any point of view. A transparent mode is applied to facilitate a more detailed exploration of the heart. Two common types of arrhythmias, atrial flutter and atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia as well as the effects of catheter ablation treatment are represented in this model. VR920 3D glasses facilitate virtual reality immersion. The model is expected to help users to visualize abstract electrophysiology concepts and procedures, raise medical education and training levels, and, ultimately, benefit patients through better training outcomes.
