A method of digitization and synchronization of ECG signals for use in vectorcardiography is hereby presented. It is intended to allow the computerized use of the ECG printout used by most cardiologists. The problem is solved by digitizing the printout, which can then be used for vectorcardiography and other modern techniques, once it is synchronized using cross-correlation. Cross-correlation was found to be a superior technique for synchronization over other methods, like R-peak… CONTINUE READING
