Estradiol, Sensitive (LC/MS)
LabCorp Test #: 140244, CPT: 82670
Estradiol Sensitive LC/MS (Liquid Chromatography/tandem mass spectometry) is the most accurate test for estradiol in men. Estradiol is one of three estrogens, the other two being estriol and estrone. This test is recommended for men considering or undergoing testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), especially before prescribing any type of "estrogen blocker" (aromatase inhibitor/AI or selective estrogen receptor modulator/SERM).
