Computerized ST depression analysis improves prediction of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality: The strong heart study
Cause of Death
Signal Processing, Computer-Assisted
Computer analysis of the ECG, using computerized MC and computer-measured ST depression, provides independent and additive risk stratification for cardiovascular and all-cause mortality, and improves risk stratification compared with visual MC. These findings support the use of routine computer analysis of ST depression on the rest ECG for assessment of risk and suggest that computerized MC can replace visual MC for this purpose.
