Noninvasive evaluation of supraventricular tachycardias.

Shenasa M, Nadeau R, Savard P, Lemieux R, Curtiss EI, Follansbee WP. U. of Pittsburgh School of Med.Cardiol Clin 1990 Aug;8(3):443-64. In this article we discuss the role of noninvasive methods in evaluation of supraventricular tachycardias. The limitation of Holter monitoring and exercise testing is discussed. A significant portion of the article is devoted to the role of esophageal recording, body surface potential mapping, and phase image analysis, areas that are often underutilized but that have potential in the diagnosis of supraventricular tachycardias.
