This study aims to evaluate whether visualization and integration of the computed tomography (CT) scan of the left atrium (LA) and the esophagus into the three-dimensional (3D) electroanatomical map the day before ablation is accurate compared with integration of an esophagus tag into the electroanatomic LA map visualizing the anatomic relationship during the radiofrequency ablation or whether esophagus movement prohibits esophagus visualization the day before ablation.
