I should have included more sources, but if you search for "potenziali evocati dolore addominale/pelvico" you'll find that PE are used as a diagnostic tool for pain in this area :)


Example sentence(s):
  • I potenziali evocati (PE) valutano le risposte generate nel sistema nervoso centrale o periferico a seguito di stimolazioni sensoriali, acustiche, visive, somatosensoriali o motorie con stimolazione magnetica.

neutral  philgoddard: I don't think your confidence is justified. Evoked potential is used to test for MS and similar conditions.

  -> I probably should have kept my confidence lower, but I had already translated some research about PE and had read additional sources apart from the one above. I knew it could be used to test for neuropathy or spinal nerve compression, hence for pain!

neutral  philgoddard: Maybe, but PE seems a very short abbreviation. Couldn't they just say "con EDTA"?

PE
LFT


Explanation:
Liver Function Test

In a list of blood tests, it seems more likely to be a blood test.

PE could be "profilo epatico"
