What is this test?

The reticulocyte production index (RPI), also called a corrected reticulocyte count (CRC), is a calculated value used in the diagnosis of anemia. This calculation is necessary because the raw reticulocyte count is misleading in anemic patients. The problem arises because the reticulocyte count is not really a count but rather a percentage it reports the number of reticulocytes as a percentage of the number of red blood cells. In anemia, the patient's red blood cells are depleted, creating an erroneously elevated reticulocyte count. A reticulocyte count is a test your doctor can use to measure the level of reticulocytes in your blood. It's also known as a retic count. A reticulocyte count can help your doctor learn if your bone marrow is producing enough red blood cells.
