Peer review studies show that an ECG expert has a greater probability of agreeing with the consensus opinion of a consultant cardiologist panel than a non-expert when interpreting an ECG. However, even the very best expert will not be in total agreement.
In order to increase the probability of correct ECG interpretation, we use a double processing technique. The ECG data is first passed through a digital data processing system which is used primarily to highlight any ECG abnormalities present, thus reducing the probability of false negative results.
The ECG is then checked by a cardiac physiologist who then further refines the ECG report to improve diagnostic precision. This hybrid approach ensures our reports are more likely to be correct.
