This webcast originally aired as a live webinar sponsored by AACC on September 10, 2013. During this program, Dr. Kent Lewandrowski of Massachusetts General Hospital and Dr. Alan H.B. Wu, of San Francisco General Hospital and the University of California, San Francisco, discuss the goals of performing troponin testing on chest pain patients in the ED. The two debate whether, in terms of impact on patient outcome, it?s more important to have accurate testing or fast testing, as well as strategies labs can use to provide BOTH speedy and accurate cTn testing for clinicians who are attempting to assess whether their chest pain patient has had a heart attack.
