He discusses that these new assays may also be used during health checks, to identify patients at high risk of having an acute cardiac event in the future. Prof. Ishii also explains how the Siemens High-Sensitivity Troponin I assay meets the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for this type of assay.
