Diagnosis is a major component of the procedure of a doctor’s visit. From the point of view of statistics, the diagnostic procedure involves classification tests.
Diagnosis can take many forms, It might be a matter of naming the disease, lesion, dysfunction or disability. It might be a management-naming or prognosis-naming exercise. It may indicate either degree of abnormality on a continuum or kind of abnormality in a classification. It’s influenced by non-medical factors such as power, ethics and financial incentives for patient or doctor. It can be a brief summation or an extensive formulation, even taking the form of a story or metaphor. It might be a means of communication such as a computer code through which it triggers payment, prescription, notification, information or advice. It might be pathogenic or salutogenic. It’s generally uncertain and provisional.
Once a diagnostic opinion has been reached, the provider is able to propose a management plan, which will include treatment as well as plans for follow-up. From this point on, in addition to treating the patient’s condition, the provider can educate the patient about the etiology, progression, prognosis, other outcomes, and possible treatments of her or his ailments, as well as providing advice for maintaining health.
A treatment plan is proposed which may include therapy and follow-up consultations and tests to monitor the condition and the progress of the treatment, if needed, usually according to the medical guidelines provided by the medical field on the treatment of the particular illness.
A diagnosis made on the basis of medical signs and patient-reported symptoms, rather than diagnostic tests.
A diagnosis based significantly on laboratory reports or test results, rather than the physical examination of the patient. For instance, a proper diagnosis of infectious diseases usually requires both an examination of signs and symptoms, as well as laboratory characteristics of the pathogen involved.
A diagnosis based primarily on the results from medical imaging studies. Greenstick fractures are common radiological diagnoses.
The single medical diagnosis that is most relevant to the patient’s chief complaint or need for treatment. Many patients have additional diagnoses.
The diagnosis given as the reason why the patient was admitted to the hospital; it may differ from the actual problem or from the discharge diagnoses, which are the diagnoses recorded when the patient is discharged from the hospital.
Proper diagnosis is the first most important step in treating the patient . Unless we have detected the presence of periodontal condition, identified its type, extent distribution ,severity and determined the underlying pathologic processes & its cause, it won’t be possible to undertake a successful treatment. The different findings are not only collected or assembled but are relevantly correlated so as to arrive at a proper diagnosis.
FIRST VISIT Overall appraisal of the patient. General evaluation, consideration of mental & emotional status, temparament, attitude & physiologic age.
Medical diagnosis (abbreviated Dx or DS) is the process of determining which disease or condition explains a person’s symptoms and signs. It is most often referred to as diagnosis with the medical context being implicit. The information required for diagnosis is typically collected from a history and physical examination of the person seeking medical care. Often, one or more diagnostic procedures, such as diagnostic tests, are also done during the process.
General components which are present in a diagnostic procedure in most of the various available methods include
Complementing the already given information with further data gathering, which may include questions of the medical history (potentially from other people close to the patient as well), physical examination and various diagnostic tests
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. Diagnostic tests can also be used to provide prognostic information on people with established disease
There are a number of methods or techniques that can be used in a diagnostic procedure, including performing a differential diagnosis or following medical algorithms. In reality, a diagnostic procedure may involve components of multiple methods
