I have a blood test tomorrow and was wondering if it will detect hcg levels. After a Miscarriage on Wednesday. The request is not for HCG?

In brief: Serial HCG

Pregnancy hormone concentrations double over a 48 h time period in a viable pregnancy or by the same token cut in half, if there was a miscarriage.
If a doctor after a miscarrige is not sure, whether all pregnancy hormone producing tissue was aborted, serial hcg test can help determine that.
