    The purpose of this study is to evaluate and contrast the diagnostic potency of two-dimensional echocardiography and electrocardiography (ECG) in a clinical situation. Methodology: A sample of 108 people with a medical history and clinical profile were recruited to to evaluate the effectiveness of various electrocardiographic criteria in identifying left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in patients by using 3D echocardiography. The area-length approach, which involved using data derived from 3D echocardiographic imaging, was used to calculate the left ventricular mass. Calculating the difference between the left ventricular epicardial volume and the left ventricular endocardial volume will yield the left ventricular mass. The volume of the left ventricular myocardium is represented by the number 1.05. 1.05 g/mL is the myocardial density measurement. Results: The results of the present investigation showed that all participants had hypertension and a significant proportion of them had coronary artery disease (CAD). It was found that among the various criteria used to diagnosis LVH, the ECG LVH Sokolow Lyon criteria could be utilized to identify a maximum of 52.8% of patients with LVH. The next method was the Cornell voltage CR criterion, which identified LVH in 38.9% of instances. Conclusion: In conclusion, eectrocardiography (ECG) is found to be ineffective when assessing individuals for left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) using widely accepted criteria. Instead, echocardiography is thought to be the best technique for evaluating LVH because it not only helps with diagnosis but also makes it possible to quantify left ventricular mass. In these cases, the additional information from the echocardiogram has a high prognostic value.
