Learn more about cardiac high-sensitivity troponins
- Cardiac troponins are markers of myocardial necrosis and due to their high cardiac-specificity, are the preferred biomarker for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction.
- The evolution from relatively insensitive cardiac troponin assays to high-sensitivity assays enables detections of lower levels of troponins and thus, has necessitated evolving testing approaches to optimize clinical utility.
- The latest generation of high-sensitivity cardiac troponins support rapid diagnostic protocols aiding in the earlier discharge of a significant percentage of non-AMI patients, as well as aid a faster admission.
- The sensitivity and precision offered by high-sensitivity assays is essential for rapid protocols in order to more accurately differentiate clinically significant change from assay imprecision.
Join us to review the latest updates in the guidelines related to high-sensitivity troponins and their clinical utility within Asia Pacific.
