Over the course of nearly a century, the 12-lead ECG has proven to bea valuable investigation in the diagnosis and assessment of a widerange of conditions. Like all tests, it has limitations. However, in certaincircumstances, and in relation to particular conditions, modification ofthe standard ECG recording procedure can greatly increase thediagnostic value of the test. The authors look at how modified chestelectrode positions and an ajmaline provocation test can unmaskBrugada syndrome that is not evident from the standard ECG; how highresolutionsignal-averaged ECGs may reveal late ventricular potentialsthat suggest an increased risk of malignant arrhythmias or thepresence of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy; and howmulti-site body surface mapping may prove to be of value, particularlywhen combined with cardiac imaging, in elucidating the origin, andguiding the curative treatment, of certain arrhythmias.
