In fact, over 40% of the patients who had low peak TnI values had a non-ischemic evaluation. 4 0 TnI (−) Low TnI Inter TnI High TnI Fig. 5 Outcomes based on peak troponin I (TnI) values. Groups were defined as follows: Negative: no detectable TnI; Low: peak TnI values ≥ lower limit of detectability and < optimal diagnostic value; Intermediate: peak TnI values ≥ optimal diagnostic value < upper reference limit; High: peak TnI values ≥ upper reference limit. The incidence of positive outcomes (either death, CK-MB MI, revascularization, significant disease on angiography, or abnormal rest myocardial perfusion imaging) increased significantly as peak TnI increased (black bars).
