To the Editor We read with great interest the case-control study report by Vähätalo et al1 in a bid to answer the question of the prevalence of undiagnosed or silent myocardial infarction (SMI) scars among individuals who experienced sudden cardiac death (SCD). We congratulate the authors for the work done using the database to investigate SCD in a multimodality fashion, considering most prior studies used autopsy alone.
