“Early diagnosis of myocardial infarction: incremental value of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin and cardiac imaging” on Saturday, 26.08.2017, 15:30 - 16:30 at room Riga - Village 3.

How does high-sensitive Troponin support fast diagnosis of emergency patients?
How does the new Siemens Healthineers hs TnI assay perform in comparison to other assays?
What are the latest innovations and developments in cardiac CT for emergency patients?

The new ESC guidelines recommend the use of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin with an established 0h/1h-algorithm for safe and early rule-out & rule-in of AMI. Latest data documenting the excellent performance of the 0h/1h-algorithm using the hs-cTnI (Centaur) will be provided and the incremental value of hs-cTnI and cardiac CT imaging in early diagnosis of AMI will be evaluated.


Chairpersons: Prof. A. Leber (Munich, DE)

15:30 Translating analytical superiority of hs-cTnI assays into clinical superiority in the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.
C E Mueller (Basel, CH)

15:50 Highly sensitive troponin in the evaluation of suspected acute coronary syndrome.
W F Peacock (Houston, US)

16:10 Cardiac CT for the Emergency Room in the Era of Hs-Troponins.
M Marwan (Erlangen, DE)

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s ESC Congress in Barcelona.
