A partial thromboplastin time (PTT) test helps doctors assess your body’s ability to form blood clots. Each time you bleed, it triggers a series of reactions known as the “coagulation cascade.” Coagulation is the process your bod...
A complete blood count, or CBC, is an easy and very common test that screens for certain disorders that can affect your health. A CBC measures several components of your blood and can help diagnose a broad range of conditions, from anemia and infe...
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
A venogram, also known as venography, is a test that lets your doctor see your veins on an X-ray. (Veins cannot be seen on a normal X-ray.) You’ll be injected with a liquid called “contrast dye” to make the veins visible on the X...
An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasoun...
