To the Editor: Hoffmann et al. (July 26 issue)(1) conclude that, among patients with low-to-intermediate-risk acute coronary syndromes, the incorporation of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) improves the standard evaluation strategy.(2) However, it may be difficult to generalize their results, owing to different situations on the two sides of the Atlantic and the availability of high-sensitivity troponin T assays in Europe. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration has still not approved a high-sensitivity troponin test, and patients in the Rule Out Myocardial Infarction/Ischemia Using Computer Assisted Tomography (ROMICAT-II) trial only underwent testing with the conventional troponin T . . .
