    Cardiac biomarkers for diagnosis have become more sensitive in recent decades.

    Cardiac troponin is the preferred biomarker for the diagnosis of MI, and considerable efforts have been invested in the development and implementation of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) assays.

    The currently used hs-cTn assays are highly valuable and their use is outlined by international guidelines. Acute changes in hs-cTn complement the quantitative information provided by hs-cTn, and help in the differential diagnosis of diseases with chronic, stable troponin elevations versus diseases with acute troponin elevations and acute cardiac damage.
