thromboelastography

(throm″bō-ĕ-las-tog′ră-fē) [ thrombo- + elasto- + -graphy]
A technique that evaluates the ability of whole blood to coagulate. The technique measures the time it takes for blood to clot, and the firmness or shear strength of the clot. It is used, e.g., to identify the presence of hypercoagulable diseases.
