October 2010

To conclude, the precision of troponin assays will continue to improve, allowing for earlier diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction and better risk stratification for our patients. Interpretation of a clinically significant change in troponin concentration will continue to be important, especially upon use of the new highly sensitive assays. Point of care testing for troponin has not achieved the same level of precision as highly automated methods and remains an area for improvement.
