Informed decisions about health and the treatment of disease are guided by information discovered though medical screening and diagnostic tests. Screening tests identify risk factors for specific disorders, while diagnostic tests find markers of disease or dysfunction. Medical tests assist in diagnosing the causes of symptoms, making treatment decisions, and assessing treatment effectiveness.

Medical Tests Sourcebook, 5th Edition, provides information about screening, diagnostic, and disease-monitoring procedures, including the screening, laboratory, and imaging tests used for specific conditions.
