Cardiac Troponin-I is a protein found in the cells of the heart muscle. The level of cardiac Troponin-I can be measured by the health of the heart muscle. Can be detected in healthy asymptomatic individuals. Current risk stratification tools like Framingham, Euro score, Lipid Profile, hs CRP are not cardiac-specific and can be heavily influenced by age.
