reported a novel method of localization of the phrenic nerve with cardiac computed tomography and found that the imaged pericardiophrenic artery could reliably identify the approximate location of the RPN, suggesting that a phrenic nerve location within 10 mm of the RSPV poses a higher risk of PNI using balloon ablation devices.
