    A 15-year-old boy died suddenly while playing basketball. He was in the middle of a sprint when he suddenly succumbed. Resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. His family assured us that he had no previous symptoms and that his family history was unremarkable. His two-year older brother, however, remembered that he had also collapsed once while playing an exciting basketball match. This occurred at the age 10, after which he experienced no further events. His brother’s death worried him (and his family) and he visited a cardiologist asking for a medical advice. Physical examination was unremarkable; his ECG is shown below An echocardiogram was completely normal.

    The question now is whether further evaluation is needed.

    It is not about "correct or incorrect" answer , It is just about next step
