Now in its Eighth Edition, this leading comprehensive manual helps nurses deliver safe, effective, and informed care for patients undergoing diagnostic tests and procedures. The book covers a broad range of laboratory and diagnostic tests and studies that are delivered to varied patient populations in varied settings. Tests are grouped according to specimen and function/test type 5/5(3). In-Vitro Diagnostic Tests Diagnostic tests are performed on samples taken on or from the body. These tests are a key component of modern health care, and they are used for a wide range of patient conditions.

A medical test is a medical procedure performed to detect, diagnose, or monitor diseases, disease processes, susceptibility, or to determine a course of treatment. Medical tests relate to clinical chemistry and molecular diagnostics, and are typically performed in a medical laboratory. 1 Types of tests.

The global clinical diagnostics market is anticipated to witness growth over the forecast period, driven by development of sophisticated and specialized tests for early disease detection and disease management and increasing demand for lab automation. Clinical Diagnostic Tests How to Avoid Errors in Ordering Tests and Interpreting Results Michael Laposata, MD, PhD Clinical Diagnostic Tests is a convenient, quick-reference guide to common errors and pitfalls in test selection and result interpretation for practitioners and trainees in all areas of clinical medicine. Stages of research. We have divided studies of diagnostic tests into four phases (box). We use research on brain natriuretic peptide for diagnosing heart failure as an illustrative example. 2 However, the architecture is applicable to a wide range of tests including laboratory techniques, diagnostic imaging, pathology, evaluation of disability, electrodiagnostic tests, and Cited by: Whether diagnostic tests should be read with clinical information has been much disputed since Schreiber 1 suggested 40 years ago that clinical information improved the accuracy of chest x-ray reading. An argument favoring reading diagnostic tests with clinical information is that the accuracy of the read may be improved by the additional information. It Cited by:
