Phase maps obtained from Electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI) have been used in the past for rotor identification and ablation guidance in atrial fibrillation (AF). In this study, we propose a new rotor detection algorithm and evaluate its potential use for prediction of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) success. The mean precision and recall of the algorithm were evaluated by using manually annotated ECGI phase maps and resulted in 0.82 and 0.75, respectively. Phase singularities and rotors were then quantified on ECGI signals from 29 patients prior to PVI. A significantly higher concentration of phase singularities (PSs) in the pulmonary veins in patients with a successful PVI was found. Our results suggest that rotorrelated metrics obtained from ECGI derived phase maps contain relevant information to predict clinical outcome in PVI patients.
