Special Coagulation/Clinical

Special coagulation testing investigates the blood's ability to clot, and how long it takes. Testing can help assess a patient's risk of excessive bleeding or of developing clots (thrombosis) somewhere in the blood vessels. If a clotting disorder is suspected, coagulation testing is performed to measure various proteins and how they function. A patient's risk for bleeding or clotting episodes tend to increase during pregnancy as well as during cancer treatment.

An expansive menu of special coagulation tests are available through the Northwell Health Genomics Alliance. Commonly ordered tests are listed below.
