Echo V ECG
I consulted my GP with H/O chest pain and ECG showed MI. However cardiologist who did not see the ECG did an echo which he reported reported as normal, so I have been dischared and given a clean bill of health. Does an ECHO seen by a cardiologist take precedence over a ECG machine diagnosis MI.
Thanks

I don't think it does because the echo shows the structure of the heart, not the electrical system. It may show, however, if there is damage done as the result of the heart attack, if there is enough damage done. The EKG will show a heart attack in the section of EKG Complex called the RST Complex. Over several days in time, the complex configuration will change.
