One-hour rule-out and rule-in of acute myocardial infarction using high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T.

Abstract

BACKGROUND High-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) assays seem to improve the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but it is unknown how to best use them in clinical practice.
