Red blood cell survival test: The red blood cell survival test is used to determine the extent of hemolytic anemia by measuring how long the patient's red blood cells (RBCs) survive. The patient's RBCs are removed and labeled with a radioactive element and reinjected into the patient; blood levels of radioactivity throughout the study can generate an RBC lifespan value. The second part of this test involves imaging the spleen and liver to diagnose splenomegaly.
