Different Types Of Medical Tests

Clinical laboratories play a crucial role in modern healthcare by providing valuable diagnostic information to aid in patient care.

Complete Blood Count (CBC): This common test assesses the overall health of a patient by measuring various components of their blood, including red and white blood cells, hemoglobin, and platelets.

7 Different Types of Medical Tests

Blood Tests

Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP): BMP measures essential electrolytes, glucose levels, and kidney function.

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): Similar to BMP, CMP includes additional tests to evaluate liver function and protein levels, providing a more comprehensive overview of a patient’s health.

Urinalysis: By analyzing a urine sample, clinicians can detect signs of kidney disease, urinary tract infections, diabetes, and other conditions.


X-rays: X-rays use low doses of radiation to produce images of bones, organs, and tissues. These different types of medical tests are essential for diagnosing fractures, lung conditions, and dental problems.

Imaging Tests

Genetic Testing: Clinical labs offer different types of medical tests including the genetic tests which are invaluable to identify inherited diseases, assess the risk of certain conditions, and guide personalized treatment plans.

Genetic Testing

Culture and Sensitivity Testing: This method involves growing microorganisms from patient samples (e.g., blood, urine, or sputum) to identify the specific pathogen causing an infection and determine the most effective antibiotics for treatment.

Microbiology Tests

Thyroid Function Tests: These tests assess the thyroid gland’s activity by measuring hormone levels. They’re crucial for diagnosing thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.

Hormone Tests

Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG): ECGs record the heart’s electrical activity, helping diagnose arrhythmias, heart attacks, and other cardiac conditions.
