Electrocardiogram (ECG) provides valuable information regarding the electrophysiology of the heart in complex cardiac diseases. Understanding some basic and typical ECG concepts in these clinical entities can enhance and aid in accurate imaging diagnoses made by radiologists. We made an attempt to correlate between the typical ECG and corresponding radiological findings in various cardiac disease, using MRI as the primary imaging modality. Many interesting cases are illustrated using anatomical and ECG correlation as the primary theme of this educational poster. Additional ECG interpretation skills have helped us understand the language commonly spoken by clinicians especially cardiologists thereby nurturing a strong professional relationship.
