The Smith modification is quite a bit easier and (I believe) more sensitive and specific. This graphic doesn't demonstrate the concordant elevation or depression that is also a major player.

For  second there I was like, “what?! Never heard of the smith modification? Then I read it and realized it’s what I’ve always used. We learned it as the “modified sgarbossa” criteria, never knew the name of the person who modified it. Afterwards we all just called it Sgarbossa criteria, always referring to the modification. In fact, it’s not even listed in MDCalc as modified, but the criteria is definitely from the modification and mention it in the evidence.
