Regarding the UChicago PR, Dr. Tung's experience at UCLA was highlighted and his usage of RMN was noted as follows

"He performed dozens of procedures with the Niobe system while at UCLA, 85% of which were for VT ablation (a particularly complex procedure), citing the system’s ability to access every area of the left ventricle."

He started heading up the UCLA VT program in 2009. I am not sure when the system was installed and also when ucla upgraded to the latest generation system which is much quicker with catheter navigation. Still dozens of procedures over multiple years using the magnetic system doesn't seem congruent to the "expert" label when top USA centers do a few hundred VT ablations a year although not all of them robotically.
