PROTHROMBIN TIME (PT) AND
INTERNATIONAL NORMALIZED RATIO (INR) TEST
DETECTION OF LIFE-THREATENING DISEASES
WHY SHOULD I GET TESTED?
Clotting is crucial, because it stops your bleeding after an injury; although a blood clot in your vein or artery could be lethal, blocking blood flow to vital organs causing a heart attack or stroke.
A Prothrombin Time (PT) and International Normalized Ratio (INR) Test can be used to diagnose acute myeloid leukemia, excessive bleeding (hemophilia), liver conditions, thrombosis, or vitamin K deficiency.
