Suggested Additional Lab Testing

D-dimer levels over the course of hours to days to determine if D-dimer levels are increasing or decreasing are suggested.

Consider imaging and vascular studies for diagnosis of DVT and PE when a D-dimer test is positive in a patient with predisposing factors for venous thrombosis.
