Troponin I (Cardiac)
3392Diagnostic use in the quantitative determination of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in serum. Cardiac troponin I determinations aid in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction and in the risk stratification of patients with non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndromes with respect to relative risk of mortality, myocardial infarction (MI) or increased probability of ischemic events requiring urgent revascularization procedures.
