From:"Drew Sally A."

My co-worker and I were wondering what the EBer ISH workload volume is out
there for other renal transplant services.  We have been pressured to bring
this test onboard, but have also been told by one of the surgeons that the
volume requested would only be 10-12 per year.  This seems low, we would
have expected it to be higher since our institution is supposedly the second
largest RTX center in the nation.  We're concerned about the cost of
maintaining the test for such low volume-yet we also realize that one of the
issues is the turn-around-time for sending it out.
