Medical Diagnosis is the process that identifies a possible disease or disorder and the opinion reached by this process. Diagnosis can be carried out by various diagnostic tests. A diagnostic test is a kind of medical test that performed to support in the diagnosis and disease findings, and it also used to provide information on patients with existing disease. Diagnostic procedure may involve components of multiple methods.

|Aims and Scope|
Medical diagnosis is the process of determining the disease or condition by seeing the patient’s symptoms and signs. It is usually called diagnosis when the medical context is unexpressed. The information required for diagnosis is typically collected from a history and physical examination of the patient seeking medical hospitality. Several diagnostic tests are also done during the process to conclude the result.
A medical diagnosis deals with disease or medical condition. A nursing diagnosis deals with human response to actual or potential health problems and life processes.

Differential diagnosis can be defined as the process of weighing the probability of one disease versus that of other diseases possibly accounting for a patient's illness. The differential diagnosis of rhinitis a runny nose includes allergic rhinitis (hay fever), the abuse of nasal decongestants and common cold.
Physical changes in the brain can cause other forms of dementia as well. Differential Diagnosis may be complicated by coexisting conditions or when symptoms and pathologies of various dementias overlap. Making an accurate diagnosis helps patients receive the treatment and support services appropriate for their condition and maintain the highest possible quality of life.

The methods or procedures used to diagnose a particular disease called as Diagnostic Methods. Most diagnostic tests are conducted on the living patients and some of the tests can be done on a dead person as part of an autopsy or post-mortem. Some are done as a physical examination with the hands of skilled practitioner. Some tests are done in pathology labs with the help of specimens or samples. Medical tests can have value when results are abnormal by explaining the cause of the patient symptoms.
Diagnostic techniques and procedures encompass all investigations and tests intended to identify the cause of an illness or disorder. They include, for example, laboratory tests for infectious agents, and imaging techniques, such as radiology and ultrasound examination.

Positron emission tomography (PET) functional imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image of metabolic processes in the body. The system detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (tracer), which is introduced into the body on a biologically active molecule.
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that helps reveal how your tissues and organs are functioning. A PET scan uses a radioactive drug (tracer) to show this activity. The tracer may be injected, swallowed or inhaled, depending on which organ or tissue is being studied by the PET scan.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians to diagnose and treat medical conditions. MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed images of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body. Most MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets. When you lie inside an MRI machine, the magnetic field temporarily realigns hydrogen atoms in your body.

Medical screening is a series of simple, multiple choice questions that determine the severity of your condition when you buy travel insurance. Some of the questions might seem personal, but the answers you give will be completely confidential.
Medical screening means declaring any pre existing medical conditions to the Insurer. Some Insurers do this after you have taken out the policy and will then add an additional premium for the medical cover. This can be a bit misleading because the premium you’ve been quoted isn’t the one you end up paying.

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to create detailed pictures, or scans, of areas inside the body. It is also called computerized tomography and computerized axial tomography (CAT).
Computed tomography (CT) is performed using a specialized scanner, an x-ray system, a patient table, and a computer workstation. The CT scanner is shaped like a large square with a hole in the center or round like a doughnut. X rays are produced in the form of a beam that rotates around the patient. During a CT scan, the patient table is moved through the center hole as x-ray beams pass through the patient's body. The x rays are converted into a series of black-and-white images, each of which represents a "slice" of the anatomy.

Haemodialysis removes wastes and excess fluid outside your body. During a haemodialysis treatment in a dialysis centre, blood is removed from your body and pumped by a machine through a dialyzer. The dialyzer is the semipermeable membrane that cleans your blood.
Dialysis of soluble substances and water from the blood by diffusion through a semipermeable membrane or separation of cellular elements and colloids from soluble substances which is achieved by pore size in the membrane and rates of diffusion. Blood is used for diffusion, so called as haemodialysis.

A diagnosis made on the basis of medical signs and patient-reported symptoms, rather than diagnostic tests. Laboratory diagnosis. A diagnosis based significantly on laboratory reports or test results, rather than the physical examination of the patient.
Diagnostic tests provide objective information about a person’s health. This information can be used for many purposes. Some tests are used for risk assessment purposes to determine the likelihood that a medical condition is, or will become, present. Other tests are used to monitor the cours e of a disease or to assess a patient’s response to treatments, or even to guide the selection of further tests and treatments.

Prenatal diagnosis employs a variety of techniques to determine the health and condition of an unborn fetus. Without knowledge gained by prenatal diagnosis, there could be an untoward outcome for the fetus or the mother or both. Congenital anomalies account for 20 to 25% of perinatal deaths.
Prenatal diagnosis include ultrasound of the uterus, placenta, and/or developing fetus, chorionic villus sampling (CVS) to obtain tissue for chromosome or biochemical analysis; and amniocentesis to obtain amniotic fluid for the analysis of chromosomes, enzymes, or DNA. A growing number of birth defects and diseases can be diagnosed prenatally and in some cases treated before birth. Also known as antenatal diagnosis.

Retrospective Diagnosis is the diagnosis done after patient’s death. It is also called as Postmortem. This procedure is used to identify the culprit who killed him and how he got killed. This term is used by some clinical pathologist to describe medical diagnosis. This procedure is done secretly and the results are kept confidential and revealed only to the Crime Investigation cops.
A retrospective diagnosis (also retrodiagnosis or posthumous diagnosis) is the practice of identifying an illness after the death of the patient, sometimes in a historical figure using modern knowledge, methods and disease classifications.

Diagnostic imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities.
Diagnostic imaging refers to technology that looks inside the body to help determine the causes of an injury or illness and ensure that a diagnosis is accurate. Tualatin Imaging's Diagnostic Imaging department primarily focuses upon creating images of the body, its organs, and other internal structures not otherwise represented in one of our more specialized diagnostic categories such as CT, MR, or ultrasound. We utilize a variety of specialized equipment and techniques including x-ray and fluoroscopy.

Laboratory tests are often part of a routine or general checkup to look for internal physiological changes taking place inside a human body. They also help doctors to diagnose medical conditions, plan or evaluate treatments, and examine diseases. These are also called as in-vivo tests which are done only in the lab as Lab Experiments.
Laboratory tests obviously add up to significant expenditures. If many of these tests are inappropriate, superfluous, or misinterpreted, then learning how to use the laboratory properly might have significant benefits for both individual patients and the economy as a whole. The term diagnostic test does not refer only to costly "big ticket" imaging or monitoring procedures such as magnetic resonance imaging, computerized axial tomography, electronic fetal monitoring, or cardiac catheterization. It refers in addition to the countless laboratory tests ordered every day on patients, tests such as electrolytes, serum chemistries, coagulation profiles, or complete blood counts.

A biopsy is a sample of tissue taken from the body in order to examine it more closely. A doctor should recommend a biopsy when an initial test suggests an area of tissue in the body isn't normal. Doctors may call an area of abnormal tissue a lesion, a tumor, or a mass.
A biopsy is the removal of a sample of tissue or cells so that they can be examined by a pathologist, usually under a microscope. A specialist trained to examine a sample of tissue for signs and extent of disease under a microscope is called a pathologist. For the true definition of biopsy, the tissue needs to be removed from a living subject.
