Use of high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT) assays, compared with standard TnT assays, may result in only modest improvement in evaluating emergency-department patients with chest pain, according to a new study. For the high-sensitivity assays to be clinically effective, it may require closely joining them with protocols that can help guide interpretation and care, researchers conclude.
