Portuguese term or phrase: gota espessa e estendida
gota espessa means 'thick blood smear'. I am not sure what 'gota estendida' means...is it 'centrifugal', 'peripheral' or 'thin' blood smear? the phrase is 'contagem de parasitas na gota espessa e estendida' - could it be 'counting of parasites in the thick and thin blood smear'?
