This is a recorded version of an AACC live webinar that
was held July 8, 2014. Purchase this program and hear Dr. Fred Apple discuss
how to select a presumably normal
population for the establishment of 99th percentile cutoffs for cardiac troponin
(cTn) assays. During the webinar, Dr. Apple addresses what
defining a normal, healthy 99th percentile reference value entails; suggests
approaches labs can take to define "normal" individuals for
their cTn reference population using clinical and biomarker surrogates; and what
the introduction of high-sensitivity cTn assays will mean for defining a
"normal" population by gender.
A Q&A session from the live webinar is also included
on the recording.
