Methods of Visualization and Analysis of Cardiac Depolarization in the Three Dimensional Space

Sergei Artemov, Bernd Krause

Abstract: Research analysis of electrocardiograms (ECG) today is carried out mostly using time depending signals of different leads shown in the graphs. Definition of ECG parameters is performed by qualified personnel, and requiring particular skills. To support decoding the cardiac depolarization phase of ECG there are methods to analyze space-time convolution charts in three dimensions where the heartbeat is described by the trajectory of its electrical vector. Based on this, it can be assumed that all available options of the classical ECG analysis of this time segment can be obtained using this technique. Investigated ECG visualization techniques in three dimensions combined with quantitative methods giving additional features of cardiac depolarization and allow a better exploitation of the information content of the given ECG signals.

Keywords: ECG, PCA, cardiac depolarization
