Detection of Frequently Overlooked Electrocardiographic Lead Reversals Using Artificial Neural Networks
American Journal of Cardiology 78, 600-604 (1996)

Artificial neural networks can be used to recognize lead reversals in the 12-lead ECG at very high specificity, and the sensitivity is much higher than that of a conventional interpretation program. The neural networks developed in this and an earlier study for detection of lead reversals, in combination with an algorithm for the right arm/right foot lead reversal, would recognize around 75% of lead reversals encountered in clinical practice.
