    Abstract

    Emergency departments across the United States annually treat close to 6 million patients who present with chest pain (CP).1 Only a minority of these patients (10-30%) are ultimately diagnosed as having an acute myocardial infarction or acute coronary syndrome (ACS).2, 3 Yet, many patients with noncardiac CP are admitted to the hospital or to observation units incurring enormous burden to the health-care system. It has been estimated that the majority of patients admitted to the hospital with CP have a noncardiac etiology.1 Of those who do have ACS, the standard diagnostic algorithms that are currently employed are frequently nondiagnostic, leading to a delayed or even missed diagnosis.2-4
