The sensitivity and specificity of findings for Structural Heart Disease in Athletes are listed below. See the left navigation bar to change the display.

**Note that calculating probabilities from more than one finding is inherently inaccurate because findings are not independent. (For example, using two positive findings that share a common pathogenesis is likely to overestimate the true probability.)
