Thallium Blood Test - More Information
The thallium blood test measures the thallium blood level.
To get a thallium blood test near you, just order online and get your blood drawn at the Quest Diagnostics lab that you chose. Once your thallium blood test results are ready, they will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample thallium blood test lab report above, the thallium blood level is reported as a numerical result and can be compared against the reference ranges provided by the lab. Blood thallium levels are useful for checking for recent thallium exposures but, because thallium is processed by the body quickly, only stay elevated for a relatively short period of time. As an alternative, the thallium urine test measures urine thallium levels which might be more useful for longer exposures.
Please note that the thallium blood test was developed and its analytical performance characteristics have been determined by Quest Diagnostics. This test has not been cleared or approved by FDA. This assay has been validated pursuant to the CLIA regulations and is used for clinical purposes.
