Test Change Announcement

TEST NAME CHANGE: Effective August 4, 2010 the name of the test "UA conditional" (15015) will be changing. The test will now be named UA with Microscopic (C&S if indicated). When this test is ordered, a complete urinalysis is performed which includes the macroscopic (also known as dipstick or chemical) and the microscopic portions. If selected criteria are met, a urine Culture and Sensitivity is also performed. Over the years there has been some confusion with the term "conditional", which is what has prompted this change. The test itself is not changing at all, just the name of it. Over time we will be updating requisitions, computer systems and other documents to reflect the new name.
