Temporal Stability of Block Term Decomposition in Noninvasive Atrial Fibrillation Analysis

Abstract : Considered as the last great frontier of cardiac electrophysiology, atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in clinical practice. The mechanisms behind this disease are not completely understood, and a precise analysis of the atrial activity (AA) signal is necessary to a better understanding. The block term decomposition (BTD) has been recently proposed as a useful tool for noninvasive AA extraction in electrocardiogram (ECG) signals. However, this tensor factorization technique was assessed only in short fixed segments of an AF ECG. To bridge this gap, the present work evaluates for the first time the temporal (intra-patient) stability of BTD by considering consecutive segments through a whole AF ECG recording. Experimental results show the consistency of BTD as an AA extraction tool, being capable of outperforming two well-known matrix-based methods and presenting a stable performance over time.
