Identify a Disease

Diagnostics 101

The word Diagnosis comes from the ancient Greek word diagignōskein, which means “distinguish”, “discern”. This branch of medicine refers to the process of identifying a disease or an injury from the signs observed in a patient by a qualified medical practitioner and symptoms experienced by the patient. a diagnosis can be achieved by doing a physical examination, gathering the patient’s family history, running blood tests or radiological tests, or collecting a tissue sample (biopsy) for further examinations. This process enables health practitioners to precisely and accurately identify the cause of the disease or injury, and determine the most appropriate treatment strategy.

Diagnostics 101 is aiming to provide comprehensive guidelines on the most and less common diagnostic procedures, describing how to prepare and what to expect from those. A better understanding of these diagnostic procedures sets the basis to make informed decisions about your health care.
