Heavy metals test: Heavy metals are common metals that can cause poisoning in humans. The most common example is lead, which is a big threat to children. Other metals encountered at work places can also be a problem: cadmium, arsenic, gold, mercury. A heavy metals test panel is a blood (or urine) test that assays for the most common heavy metals.
