Coagulation/Thrombotic Risk Panel
This panel contains the following tests:
- PT/PTT with INR
D-dimer is a test that measures the tendency of blood to clot inappropriately. The higher the number, the greater the risk for conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and arterial plaque rupture. D-dimer may be ordered when you have symptoms of DVT, such as leg pain, tenderness, swelling, discoloration, edema or symptoms of PE, such as labored breathing, coughing, and lung-related chest pain. Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
