Use of multiple diagnostic criteria rather than QRS voltage alone gives good specificity (fewer false positives, less overdiagnosis).  0RACTICE%#'S)NTERPRETATIONAND2EVIEW On the other hand, the sensitivity of the ECG in detecting LVH is poor; it tends to underdiagnose. Using an ECG point system, both anatomic and echocardiographic correlation studies have shown that just half the cases of true LVH meet rigid ECG criteria. Relaxing the diagnostic criteria, by using voltage alone for example, increases sensitivity but also increases the number of false positives.
