Slow conduction across cardiac tissue is a key risk factor in arrhythmia development. Hence, quantifying and visualising conduction is among the most powerful uses of optical mapping. Despite this, conduction measurement is far from standardised. Therefore, we have used model and experimental data to assess established single- and multi-vector measures of conduction. In addition, we have explored the efficacy of a novel activation curve method. Here I will present findings from this study, along with packaging of both established and new methods for conduction quantification into a separate module adjunct to our current software.
