The development of highly sensitive assays for cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) and cardiac troponin I (hscTnI) represents the latest technological advance in a field that has witnessed continual progression toward more sensitive and more precise tools for detecting cardiac injury. The hs-cTnT assay, for example, can detect cTnT concentrations 10-fold lower than the current fourth-generation assay, with high precision at the myocardial infarction (MI) detection limit. Despite the potential for such… CONTINUE READING
