The ECG is the most frequently used tool for evaluating myocardial infarction (MI). The ECG provides an opportunity to describe location and extent of infarction expressed as pathological Q waves or their equivalents. The terminology used for the left ventricular (LV) walls has varied over time,1–7 although the most currently accepted terms by electrocardiographists have been anterior, septal, lateral, and inferior.8–15 However, terminology has been complicated by use of posterior to refer to… CONTINUE READING
