One step closer to AI-assisted diagnosis

Since the 1950s, 12-lead electrocardiograms remain a non-invasive gold standard tool for diagnosing and assessing a variety of cardiovascular diseases, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks or heart conduction abnormalities.

  • Rate
  • Rhythm
  • Axis
  • Waves (P/QRS/T)
  • Intervals and durations (PR-QT-ST)
  • Signs of ischemia

Based on insights gained from these parameters, experienced cardiologists can determine a correct diagnosis from an ECG recording.

Most of today’s industry standard ECG machines are equipped with the Marquette™ 12SL analysis algorithm by GE Healthcare, which should, in theory, help doctors with the interpretation of ECG recordings. …
