An improved QT interval measurement based on singular value decomposition. [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This paper proposes an improved method of automatic ECG QT interval measurement based on the singular value decomposition (SVD) of multiple lead ECG signals. SVD separates multiple lead ECG record into orthogonal signals. Major orthogonal signals associated with high singular values are selected first for subsequent analysis. Instantaneous norm of the major three orthogonal signals are used for estimating Q wave initiating time tQ. Two dimensional trajectory of the major orthogonal signals are utilized for T wave end time tTE estimation. The T wave trajectory stagnates at tTE. For the accurate tTE estimation, this stagnation of the trajectory is proposed to be detected by its change in tangential angle. The proposed method was applied to 17 ECG data from normal subjects, patients of long QT syndrome (LQTS) and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) to demonstrate its effectiveness. Good consistent agreement, mean relative error of 5.01%, between estimated QT intervals and those of manual measurement by an experienced cardiologist was achieved.
