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...

Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells. A reticulocyte count (also known as a retic count, reticulocyte index, or corrected reticulocyte) is a measurement and percentage of how many reticulocytes are in the blood. This count indicates whether ...
A prothrombin time (PT) test, measures the amount of time it takes for your blood plasma to clot. Prothrombin, also known as factor ll, is just one of many plasma proteins involved in the clotting process. ...
A blood smear is a diagnostic test used to look for abnormalities within the blood. The cell types are examined under a microscope for unusual shapes or sizes. There are three main cells within the blood that the test focuses on: red cells (which ...
Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs responsible for filtering blood and waste. One method to determine just how well your kidneys are filtering is by measuring the waste product urea, using the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test. This fast, simple...
