Atrial electroanatomic map of a pig with persistent AFib. The regions colored magenta, purple, and dark blue have high mean FM values. These regions maintain the AFib, and their ablation with a catheter stops the arrhythmia. The squares represent the sites of rotational activity, which are sensitive but not specific to the regions that maintain the fibrillation.
