Hello. Thank you for posting.

For the benefit of our readers: a pacemaker is a medical device that generates electrical impulses delivered by electrodes to contract the heart muscles and regulate the electrical conduction system of the heart.

Electroplating is the process of plating one metal onto another by hydrolysis, most commonly for decorative purposes or to prevent corrosion of a metal. There are numerous applications for plated medical devices. One is a pacemaker. Gold enhances conductivity for the pacemaker’s electrical components and also provides protection against corrosion.

I can find no information on "elevtropholohy." So, you will have to contact someone in the radiology department.
