Research: Previous ICD-IRS (Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators – Improving Risk Stratification) study

has shown two surface ECG markers, generated both invasively and non-invasively to correlate with

VA risk in patients with ischaemic cardiomyopathy. My current project will extend these findings in

patients with non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Supervisor: Professor G. André Ng
