This test is intended for use as an aid in the management of patients following surgical or medical treatment for prostate cancer. For post-prostatectomy patients. The lower limit of accurate quantification for this assay is 0.02 ng/mL. PSA values less than 0.02 ng/mL cannot be accurately measured and will be reported as less than 0.02 ng/mL. Specimens with PSA levels below the lower limit of accurate quantification should be considered as negative. In patients with a negative result for post-prostatectomy PSA, serial monitoring of PSA levels at regular intervals, along with physical examinations and other tests, may help to detect recurrent prostate cancer.
A significant deviation from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.
Please Note: This test is for male clients only, due to ordering restrictions on certain tests, the PSA test will not be included on the requisition and will not be performed when ordered by females.
