CBC Blood Test (Complete Blood Count)
Also Known As: CBC, Complete Blood Count With Differential, CBC With Diff, Full Blood Count, Blood Cell Count
The complete blood count (CBC) is an essential comprehensive blood panel that allows your doctor to evaluate each type of cell in your blood.
The CBC measures the number of red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), and platelets (PLT). Each of these types of blood cells performs important functions, so determining their levels can provide important health information.
A CBC may be used to help diagnose a range of health conditions and also monitor how the body is affected by different diseases or medical treatments.
