Chyle - Qualitative Detection

Chyle - Qualitative Detection is a laboratory test performed on body fluid, typically collected from the abdominal cavity or the chest. The test is used to detect the presence of chyle, a type of fluid that contains fats and proteins. The detection of chyle in places where it doesn't typically exist can help doctors diagnose and manage certain medical conditions like lymphatic disorders and injuries to the thoracic duct.
