Abstract

A 59-year-old woman with partial atrial standstill was studied using magnetocardiograms (MCGs), which revealed through QRS-T subtraction and time-frequency analysis that there was a high-frequency (6Hz) magnetic source at the low atrial septum. MCGs are useful for noninvasively evaluating the clinical course of patients with atrial fibrillation.
