    Abstract: A method and a system for simulation-assisted determination of at least one actual echo point of an object, and a method and an emulation apparatus for emulating a detection target. Here, a predicted object reference point of the object and a predicted sensor device reference point of a sensor device, in particular a radar-based sensor device, are calculated on the basis of an actual object reference point and an actual sensor device reference point and a predicted echo point of the object is calculated on the basis of an emission characteristic of the sensor device, the predicted object reference point, and the predicted sensor device reference point. Moreover, a predicted relative relationship, in particular a spatial relative relationship, is calculated between the predicted echo point and the predicted object reference point.

  • Publication number: 20160331262
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments of invasive and non-invasive systems for combined electrophysiological mapping and ablation of a patient's heart. An electrophysiological mapping system (EMS) is configured to operate in conjunction with a cardiac ablation system, which in an invasive embodiment may employ an ablation catheter configured for insertion inside the heart of the patient, and in a non-invasive embodiment may comprise a HIFU transducer. The EMS is programmed and configured to process ECG signals acquired from a patient's torso during the combined electrophysiological mapping and cardiac ablation procedure, and to produce on a display or monitor the real-time or near-real-time voxel-model-derived visual representation of one or more locations on the patient's heart where at least one scar has been created by the ablation device during the combined procedure.
