Diagnostic imaging tests are extremely valuable when it comes to a patient's healthcare. Diagnostic imaging is a range of tests used to create images of parts of the body. These tests offer doctors an inside look that helps them screen for possible health conditions before symptoms appear. These tests also help to diagnose the cause of existing symptoms and can help to explain abnormal lab work results. The enhanced view of diagnostic testing offers the doctor a better understanding of potential or current diseases that the patient may be facing.
The most common types of imaging are ultrasounds, x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. The cost of these tests depends largely on the type of imaging exam needed, whether or not the patient has health insurance, and who performs the imaging exam.
