To the Editor: Karakas and colleagues (1) reported on copeptin and high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT)1 in a substudy of ROMICAT (Rule Out Myocardial Infarction by Computed Tomography) (2) that evaluated coronary computed tomography for ruling out myocardial infarction in low- to intermediate-risk patients with chest pain who were eligible for coronary computed tomography and subsequent coronary angiography. The authors concluded that copeptin does not add diagnostic information to hsTnT in… CONTINUE READING
