prueba sanguínea / análisis de sangre

La verdad es que coincido con mis colegas en que el término que usamos es "análisis de sangre". Sin embargo, en el diccionario Mosby de ciencias médicas aparece la traducción de "Prueba sanguínea", definiéndola como: cualquier prueba que determina algún parámetro sobre las características o propiedades de la sangre.
Las siguientes entradas son "prueba serológica" (con suero), "prueba subcutánea o intradérmica", "pruebas cruzadas sanguíneas"... Lo cual me indica que podría no ser un mero calco del inglés, sino un término utilizado a nivel médico.
