Non-Invasive Imaging for Prediction of Ventricular Arrhythmias

Ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VA) remain a major cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and can present as a first manifestation of coronary artery disease (CAD) or in patients with known CAD. In the population with known CAD, therapies for the prevention of SCD include medication, implantable devices, and catheter ablation. As the latter two represent invasive interventions carrying their own substantial risk, therapeutic decisions should be based on accurate risk assessment for the prediction of VA.
