In brief: All of the above
In addition to a thorough physical exam, a full and detailed history is as important.
Heart disease can be due to electrical abnormalities, structural abnormalities or a combination of these so you will probably not appreciate the entire picture if you concentrate on a single diagnostic approach or modality.
