Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death in the world. The application of automatic processing algorithms can provide important information about these heart diseases. However, the design of these algorithms can be challenging due to the morphological variations in ECG signals, specifically in the T-wave-offset. This study proposes a comparison of several T-offset detection algorithms on healthy subjects and patients suffering from cardiac diseases. Seven state of the art algorithms were selected for implementation and were evaluated using the same dataset and benchmark to provide a fair comparison. Although no algorithm performs with 100% accuracy for all patients, most can perform well with regards to the healthy patients, with two algorithms having a high performance, above 70% accuracy, on all patients.
