Medical Check Up/Diagnostic Examinations Treatments

To solve any problem, medical or otherwise, you have to understand what has caused it. A diagnostic test is performed to identify the agent responsible for the condition and then proceeds to manage the condition with the use of the appropriate medical tools and procedures.

A diagnostic test, which is part of any health-check up, can involve one or multiple methods. As part of the physical examination, imaging examinations may be conducted, bodily fluids may be analyzed, skin testing may be performed or even psychological testing may be a route to correctly diagnose the condition in question. Some of the common medical examinations include biopsy, imaging test like CAT scan, bone scan, MRI or ultrasound; or an endoscopic medical examination that is used to examine the insides of the body (lings, rectum, colon, abdomen). A more regular medical check up involves a laboratory test of your blood or urine sample to identify and better understand the condition.
