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.
