Prothrombin Time (PT) with INR

Prothrombin Time (PT) with INR


Since the Prothrombin time (PT) evaluates the ability of blood to clot properly, it can be used to help diagnose bleeding. When used in this instance, it is often used in conjunction with the PTT to evaluate the function of all coagulation factors. Occasionally, the test may be used to screen patients for any previously undetected bleeding problems prior to surgical procedures.
