Diagnostic Tests Allergy Skin Test
An allergy skin test exposes the skin to possible allergy-causing substances (allergen) to identify which of these substances trigger an allergic reaction in a person.
Surgical Procedures Appendectomy
Appendectomy is a permanent surgical procedure that removes the appendix (a small sac attached to the large intestine). This procedure is usually performed to treat appendicitis, which is a relatively common condition where the appendix becomes inflamed or infected from blockage or other unknown reasons.
Surgical Procedures Circumcision
Circumcision is a permanent surgical procedure for males to remove the foreskin (a fold of skin that covers the tip of the penis). This procedure is often done right after birth. In some cases, however, this procedure may be done on adults either by choice or to treat medical problems of the foreskin.
Diagnostic Tests Complete Blood Count
Complete blood count (CBC) is a test that measures the size, shape, and number of different types of cells (red blood cell, white blood cell, platelets) in the blood. The different types of white blood cells (e.g., neutrophils, lymphocytes) may also be measured.
Diagnostic Tests Glucose Tolerance Test
The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) aims to measure the body's ability to use glucose (blood sugar) for energy. The test is commonly used to diagnose medical conditions where the body cannot use glucose properly.
Diagnostic Tests Hemoglobin A1C
The HbA1C test measures the amount of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) in your blood. Hemoglobin is the oxygen carrier in red blood cells and it becomes glycated hemoglobin when there is too much sugar in the blood. This test provides an indication of blood sugar control over the last 3 months.
Diagnostic Tests Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical test that uses magnetic field and radio wave energy to create detailed images of organs and structures inside the body. This test is performed when a doctor needs to see cross-sectional images of the inside of the body to detect problems with the body that other methods may not be able to determine.
Surgical Procedures Periodic Health Examination
A periodic health examination is an evaluation of your overall health condition during which your doctor will evaluate your body, organs, and their functioning. Evaluation of the body can include inspection (looking at), palpation (feeling), percussion (tapping on), and auscultation (listening) to certain areas of the body.
Diagnostic Tests Spinal Tap
A spinal tap collects cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which is the fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord. A spinal tap is often used to diagnose infections such as meningitis or diseases that affect the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis. It is also useful in diagnosing conditions such as cancer, brain or spinal cord injuries, and brain hemorrhages.
Surgical Procedures Tympanostomy Tube Insertion
Tympanostomy tube insertion is a surgery that inserts drainage tubes into the eardrum. Sometimes fluid accumulates inside the ear and causes the pressure in the middle ear to be higher than the pressure in the outer ear. This can cause middle ear infections, which are common in children and can potentially affect your child's hearing (muffling of the sound) and speech development.
