Overview

Computerized ECG exams are currently flourishing, and further development of these inexpensive and noninvasive diagnostic tools is expected in upcoming years. Because there is so much clinically relevant and useful information that can be obtained using modern electrocardiology, the editors strongly believe that a book summarizing current state-of-the-art methods of noninvasive electrocardiology will assist physicians in optimizing their clinical practice. Accordingly, the contributors comprise an international "who's who" in noninvasive electrocardiography.

The object of noninvasive electrophysiology is to reconcile comprehensive invasive electrophysiology with conventional surface electrocardiography, by extracting from the latter more extensive and dynamic information. Numerous facets of these new orientations are presented in this book, which is organized in two main sections. Part one describes noninvasive ECG tests, their methodology, and applications. Part two focuses on specific clinical conditions and diseases, and allows the reader to learn when it is worth using specific tests and when they are not of much benefit.

Clinical cardiologists and electrophysiologists at all levels will benefit from this well-written, informative update.
