Computerized QT dispersion measurement and cardiovascular mortality in male veterans

Am J Cardiol. 2004 Feb 15;93(4):483-6. doi: 10.1016/j.amjcard.2003.10.051.


We examined the prognostic value of computerized measurements of QT dispersion in 37,579 male veterans. The results of our study showed that QT dispersion is a poor independent predictor of cardiovascular mortality.
