Chapter 3 Unique Aspects of High Sensitivity Assays: What Are They, Why Do We Need Them, and How Do We Use Them? Paul Ormandy Collinson Abstract The development of immunoassays for the cardiac troponins (cTn) either cardiac troponin T (cTnT) or cardiac troponin I (cTnI) resulted in a paradigm shift in biochemical testing for the diagnosis of patients presenting with chest pain. For the first time, the laboratory was able to offer a specific diagnostic test for acute myocardial infarction (AMI).

How Do We Use High Sensitivity Troponin Assays? High Sensitivity Troponin Assays in the Acute Hospital Setting High sensitivity assays for routine clinical use are no different from conventional assays. They are an additional diagnostic modality and must be used in conjunction with clinical assessment the patient. A brief case history from the early days of troponin measurement illustrates this. O. Collinson A 25-year-old male was admitted to the ED following a fight. He complained of chest pain and gave a history of being stabbed in the chest.
