Is your lab ready for high-sensitivity troponin I? The Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction recommends high-sensitivity troponin assays for routine clinical use. Compared to standard (guideline-acceptable) cardiac troponin assays, high-sensitivity assays offer improved sensitivity and unparalleled precision at the low end of the measuring range. With the availability of high-sensitivity troponin I assays in the U.S., more laboratories have the ability to implement high-sensitivity troponin I. Join Dr. Allan Jaffe to learn about the latest recommendations and communication needed with your key clinical partners when transitioning to a high-sensitivity assay.

What you will learn

  • The latest recommendations for the Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction

  • How to discriminate myocardial infarction from myocardial injury when troponin values are elevated

  • Common questions to expect from your clinical stakeholders and how to proactively collaborate
