Prothrombin Time (PT)

A prothrombin time (PT) blood test evaluates the time period that it takes for blood plasma to clot. A common reason for this test is to check the levels of a patient taking a blood-thinning medication called warfarin. This test may also be done if an individual has abnormal bleeding and bruising or liver problems.
