Abstract : Electrocardiography using an implantable radiation hardened transmitter is described. This telemetry system allows an investigator to record the electrocardiogram (ECG) of unrestrained animals in a radiation environment. The transmitter and its use in an intense radiation field are described. The selection of electrode placement, surgical implantation of the transmitter, and the transmission and reception of a signal representative of the electrical activity of the heart from which an ECG recording is made are discussed.
