What are examples of diagnostic testing?

Examples of diagnostic testing AZ Health and Wellness Clinic offers include:

COVID-19 testing

During COVID-19 testing, your provider takes a sample of your saliva or swabs the inside of your nose or throat to determine if you’re infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Blood tests check for antibodies that may develop after getting vaccinated or having a previous COVID-19 infection. 

Flu test

Flu tests involve a swab or saliva sample to detect or rule out the presence of the flu virus. 

Strep test

Strep testing uses a simple throat swab to screen for strep throat, which may require antibiotics to speed up recovery and reduce your risk of complications. 

Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing

If you’re at risk of an STD or have symptoms of one, Khaula may order a tissue swab, blood test, or urine test to screen for specific STDs.

Imaging procedures

X-rays, ultrasounds, and other imaging procedures use painless energy to develop images of the inside of your body, such as your bones, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues. 

Other diagnostic tests

If you have symptoms or are at risk of high cholesterol, diabetes, urinary tract infections (UTIs), allergies, asthma, heart problems, or other acute and chronic diseases, AZ Health and Wellness Clinic offers various tests that can detect medical problems. 

Which diagnostic testing is best for me?

Khaula determines which diagnostic tests you’re a candidate for after weighing you, checking your vital signs, and completing a physical exam. She also reviews your medications, lifestyle habits, medical history, and symptoms before ordering diagnostic tests.
