Status: Completed
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Device
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Not Applicable
SUMMARY

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the additional use of non-fluoroscopic imaging modalities can decrease the use of radiation exposure during standard ablation procedures for supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) in children.
