|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.

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.

The devices or machines that are used in medical surgeries called as Medical Equipments. It is also known as armamentarium. They are used to diagnose certain diseases. Treatment equipment includes infusion pumps, medical lasers and LASIK surgical machines. Medical laboratory equipment automates or helps analyze blood, urine, genes, and dissolved gases in the blood. The main examples are ultrasound and MRI.
Medical Equipments requiring calibration, maintenance, repair, user training and decommissioning activities usually managed by clinical engineers. Medical equipment is used for the specific purposes of diagnosis and treatment of disease or rehabilitation following disease or injury, it can be used either alone or in combination with any accessory, consumable or other piece of medical equipment. Medical equipment excludes implantable, disposable or single-use medical devices.

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.

Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the outer layer of the adrenal gland. There are two adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are small and shaped like a triangle. One adrenal gland sits on top of each kidney.
Adrenocortical cancer is a rare disease in which cancer forms in the cortex (outer layer) of an adrenal gland. There are two adrenal glands. One sits on top of each kidney. The adrenal cortex makes important hormones, including ones that keep water and salt in balance, control blood pressure, and help the body use energy.

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 is 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 course 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.

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.

Diagnosis that require computer to watch and do the particular surgeries. These tests are useful to the doctors to take medical or clinical images. The radiology techniques are the examples of these computer aided techniques. It is applied in the detection of all types of tumors.
Computer aided detection (CAD) is a technology designed to decrease observational oversights and thus the false negative rates of physicians interpreting medical images. Prospective clinical studies have demonstrated an increase in breast cancer detection with CAD assistance. This overview briefly describes the metrics that have been used to define CAD system performance.
