Department of Internal Medicine, Cardiology Division, Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA
J Nucl Cardiol 11:12-9. 2004..A recent recommendation is that patients with increased troponin levels be diagnosed as having MI. The sensitivity and characteristics of patients who have elevated troponin levels who also underwent early MPI are unknown...
