BACKGROUND The size of myocardial infarction (MI) is of significance for the prognosis. Selvester scores might be valuable for this estimation. OBJECTIVE To compare the differences in Selvester scores for chronic MI provided from standard and EASI-derived 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) and to compare these scores to the MI size measured by delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI). METHODS Thirty-seven patients were studied. In connection with their DE-MRI scan follow-up… CONTINUE READING
