Abstract

The spatial frequency of measurement points from standard ECG systems lacks accuracy to diagnose local variability in cardiac activity on the torso. Body Surface Mapping (BSM) improves this accuracy, but lacks the simplicity to be implemented in clinic on a regular basis. Reduced-lead BSM system improves applicability, but currently no standardization of lead reduction has been agreed upon. This research investigates the reduction of BSMs based on Lomb-Scargle Spectral Analysis to determine an appropriate electrode positioning through spatial frequency assessment. Based on the measurement of 13 healthy volunteers, a 128 electrode system could be reduced to a 36 electrode system and an 84 electrode system for ventricular and atrial activity measurements, respectively, with up to 10% loss of the full information provided by the original body surface potential map. Further research will investigate the appropriate positions of these electrodes and the effect of lead reduction for various cardiac abnormalities.
