A new method for dealing with transient signals has recently appeared in the literature [2–11]. The basis functions are referred to as wavelets, and they employ time compression (or dilation) rather than a variation of frequency of the modulated sinusoid. Hence all the wavelets have the same number of cycles. The analyzing wavelets must satisfy a few simple conditions, but are not otherwise specified. There is therefore a wide latitude in the choice of these functions and they can be taylored to specific applications. We have applied them to detect ventricular delayed potentials (VLP) in the el echocardiogram.
