HS Trop I (High Sensitive Troponin I)
- Troponins are a group of proteins found in skeletal and heart (cardiac) muscle fibres that regulate muscular contraction. Troponin tests measure the level of cardiac-specific troponin in the blood to help detect heart injury.
- The high-sensitivity cardiac troponin test is the latest generation of the cardiac enzyme testing that allows for the detection of significantly low levels of troponin T.
- High-Sensitive Troponin I test helps to diagnose heart attacks more quickly. If the test is negative, it can also help “rule out” heart damage from coronary artery disease (CAD).
