Electrophysiology is the branch of cardiology that deals with the electrical patterns in your heart. One of the capabilities within electrophysiology is cardiac mapping—a specific type of electrophysiology (EP) study that doctors use to find out what is causing a heart rhythm problem like an arrhythmia.
Cardiac-mapping EP studies are done in the EP Lab at UR Medicine Heart & Vascular. An electrophysiologist, a doctor with special expertise in the heart’s electrical systems, will perform your study.
UR Medicine Heart & Vascular is considered a world leader in electrophysiology. Our research on heart rhythm disorders and treatments has helped improve treatments for patients around the globe. Staffed by nurses and technicians who work exclusively with patients who have heart rhythm disorders, our three fully equipped electrophysiology labs are uniquely equipped to diagnose and treat of heart rhythm disorders. Our newest lab includes robotic navigation to add greater precision, versatility and safety to certain procedures.
