thank you.
normal value of troponin is 0 to 0.1
it may be raised due to acute MI or unstable angina(ischemic heart disease).
it is usually significant when correlated with clinical features or ECG changes.
your troponin level is only upper limit without any significant clinical features or ECG changes.
so it is very unlikely to have ischemic disease.
