The recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) remains high because of left atrium (LA) deformation. Aim:quantification of LA dynamics in AF patients compared to healthy controls (HC) using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Methodology: 100 HC and 100 AF patients indicated for RFA will be included. All participants will undergo the CMR focused on LA.Conclusion: It describes the pathophysiological changes of LA and determines the suitable imaging biomarkers of AF.
