Diagnostics and laboratory

Diagnostic and laboratory testing are used to help diagnose and further understand patient conditions. Diagnostic testing occurs when physicians require more information for evaluation and/or diagnosis of a patient. Examples of laboratory tests include biopsies, blood tests and urine samples, among others.
