Diagnostic Tests in New York City

What is diagnostic testing?

Diagnostic testing is used to help your doctor determine the exact condition that is causing your pain or other symptoms. Diagnostic procedures can help your doctor pinpoint your exact underlying problem as well as monitor your progress throughout treatment. Some of the tests that are used to help determine your medical condition at Performance Health in NYC & Pearl River include:

Blood Testing / Lab Work

Blood testing or lab work refers to laboratory tests that can be done to analyze a patient’s chemical balances and to determine whether a patient is suffering from certain diseases and medical issues. Blood tests that are commonly performed include:

  • Cholesterol test
  • Infectious disease screening
  • Blood glucose test
  • Full blood count test

Food Allergy Testing

Allergy tests are often given to patients who exhibit symptoms of allergies but do not know for sure what they are allergic to. They may also be used to diagnose an underlying allergy that is responsible for headaches, lethargy, or other health problems.

EKG Testing

An electrocardiogram, also called an EKG or ECG test, is used to check for cardiovascular (heart-related) problems by measuring the heart’s electrical activity.

Diagnostic Imaging Tests

Diagnostic imaging tests are used by radiologists and other medical professionals who need to view inside the body to locate and diagnose a problem. Some of the tests that are frequently used to diagnose health conditions and sports injuries include:

  • X-rays
  • MRI scans
  • Ultrasounds
  • CT scans
