ABSTRACT
The problem of overlap between normal and disease groups constitutes a significant but probably not insurmountable obstacle to the use of the apexcardiogram in the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease. Furthermore, the previously referred to observations of Wayne10 regarding the diagnostic accuracy of the ACG in pre-infarctional angina and in myocardial infarction are intriguing. If his observations can be confirmed the apexcardiogram may be highly useful in the diagnosis of these sub-categories of coronary heart disease.
