Test ID DIMER D-Dimer, Plasma


Specimen Required


Only orderable as part of a profile or reflex. For more information see:

ALBLD / Bleeding Diathesis Profile, Limited, Plasma

AATHR / Thrombophilia Profile, Plasma

APROL / Prolonged Clot Time Profile, Plasma

ADIC / Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation/Intravascular Coagulation and Fibrinolysis (DIC/ICF) Profile, Plasma

ALUPP / Lupus Anticoagulant Profile, Plasma


Useful For

Diagnosis of intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis (ICF), also known as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), especially when combined with clinical information and other laboratory test data (eg, platelet count, assays of clottable fibrinogen and soluble fibrin monomer complex, and clotting time assays-prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time)

 

Exclusion of the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis, particularly when results of a sensitive D-dimer assay are combined with clinical information, including pretest disease probability
