Combined ECG-Echo for Cardiac Diagnosis
The most common tool for cardiac screening and diagnosis, the electrocardiogram (ECG) is at best an indirect measure of cardiac dimensions. Specific dimensions of interest including chamber volumes, wall thickness and septal thickness can only be indirect assessed by ECG with overall poor predictive value for these measurements. Historically the ECG...
