The Quantitative Pregnancy Tests measures the presence of hCG (Human Corionic Gonadotropin) in the blood to confirm if you are pregnant and how far along you may be. The results are expressed in numbers, reflecting the actual level of hCG present, as opposed to our Qualitative Pregnancy Test that shows a “positive” or “negative” result. It also helps diagnose an ectopic pregnancy (abnormal pregnancy that occurs outside of uterus) as well as monitors a woman post-miscarriage.
Additionally, a Quantitative hCG test may be ordered to diagnose trophoblastic disease or germ cell tumors of the testes or ovary. It may be ordered at regular intervals to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for these conditions and to detect tumor recurrence.
Detecting early pregnancy, monitoring ongoing pregnancy; diagnosing an ectopic pregnancy, monitoring a woman post-miscarriage and diagnosing tumors of testes/ovaries.
No special preparation is necessary prior to blood sample collection.
