New method for pacemaker placement

As part of her research study at Maastricht University Medical Centre+, Uyên Châu Nguyên developed a new method for the targeted placement of pacemaker leads in the heart. Nguyên studies technical medicine at the University of Twente. During her research, she combined electrical activation with MRI imagery to identify the most suitable placement of pacemaker leads in patients with heart failure. The study will soon be published in the prestigious scientific journal Heart Rhythm.
