Figure S1. Ischemia detection rates based on K point elevation for different thresholds and ECG lead systems. The dashed line represents the largest K point elevation observed in physiological simulations without any ischemic tissue considering all electrodes.

Figure S2. Ischemia detection rates based on K point elevation for single 12-lead channels per AHA segment averaged over the aforementioned set of thresholds. The temporal position of the K point was determined using all 12 leads.
