Complete a Prothrombin Time (PT INR) Test at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point
A prothrombin time test (sometimes referred to as a PT INR test) is used to evaluate how quickly a patient’s blood clots. This can be used to diagnose certain liver conditions or blood clotting disorders when unexpected bleeding is present, or it can be used to monitor the effectiveness of a blood-thinning medication that a patient is taking as a form of long-term treatment.
