Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome on - Ask a Doctor - service!

Regarding your question, let me explain that ECG may give indirect information on possible cardiac chamber dilatation or hypertrophy (increase on wall thickness).

If such a suspicion is raised, then a cardiac ultrasound is recommended.

I would like to directly review your ECG recordings.

Could you upload your ECG photo here for a second opinion?

I remain at your disposal for any further questions!

Kind regards,
