ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Challenges in diagnosis remain due to variability in ECG presentation, conditions with similar presentations, variability in the electrical manifestation of ST-segment elevation on ECG, and systems issues with access to rapid diagnosis that can make this diagnosis challenging.

Given the significant morbidity and mortality associated with STEMI, there has been a push to improve the timely diagnosis of STEMI to ensure patients receive therapy faster. However, there remain challenges in diagnosis.
