There are several...: Reports that you might be referring to. Hematuria can be detected initially by urine dipstick, which would reveal small, moderate, or large blood. A microscopic urinalysis would show more than 3 red cells per high power field. Reports for hematuria workup include: ct-ivp scan, which would reveal stones, tumors, or other abnormalities as causes; a cystoscopy note would outline cysto findings.
