Diagnostic Tests

I thought since many people have to go through diagnostic testing for various health issues, I'd post some links to information on the different kinds of diagnostic tests and general information on tests.  The following links will provide you with some very helpful information.  One of the links has information that describes the amount of radiation exposure for each test.  I also included a link for a publication that parents should read if you have a child or grandchild who will be undergoing diagnostic testing.

Common Imaging Tests (Merck & Co., Inc.)

Diagnostic Imaging (National Institutes of Health)

X-rays, CT Scans and MRIs (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)
