The purpose of this chapter is to familiarize the reader with the typical fluoroscopic views and electrograms used throughout this book. First, the rationale for the particular views used and the standard electrogram display format are introduced. The discussion then continues to the important fluoroscopic landmarks relevant to the arrhythmias encountered in the electrophysiology laboratory. These landmarks are discussed in the context of the electrograms obtained from mapping these sites and their importance from an anatomic and ablation standpoint. The first topics are the common fluoroscopic and anatomic principles relevant to the electrophysiology laboratory; then the specific differences in catheter use and electrograms obtained from the standard fluoroscopic catheter position in supraventricular tachycardia, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia; and finally some unusual positions and congenital variants.
