2012 Synthesized 18 lead ECG: A new technology for more informative ECG exam

Synthesized 18 lead ECG

Synthesized 18-lead ECG derives the waveforms of the right chest leads (V3R, V4R, V5R) and back leads (V7, V8, V9) from the standard 12-lead ECG data.
The measurement procedure is the same as the standard 12-lead ECG but more information can be obtained.
18-lead synthesized ECG is expected to be useful in detecting right side and posterior infarction.
