at h. 18.00 CET (duration 1 h)

Speaker: Paul Collinson (United Kingdom)
Moderator: Päivi Laitinen (Finland)

The measurement of cardiac troponin T (cTn) by high sensitivity methods has become the predominant cardiac biomarker in routine clinical use. The lecture will discuss how how cTn measurement fits into the guidelines for the differential diagnosis of patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes (ACS). It will then consider the kinetics of troponin release, the impact of the shift to high sensitivity methods and how high sensitivity methods can be used to support early diagnostic classification. The lecture will finish with discussion of the problems of cTn elevation outside of the ACS population.
