Diagnosis is the first and fundamental ‘examination’ aimed at identifying or recognizing the patient’s pathology. The various diagnosis methods put together are called diagnostics. Diagnostics is “instrumental” when special equipment or instruments are used, as for example in image diagnostics; “clinical” is when a direct examination on the patient is undergone by a doctor.
Once the diagnosis has been confirmed it is then possible to establish whether the pathology is treatable and what therapy will be used. At this point, knowing about the illness, its typical development and possible complications but above all the general conditions of the patient’s body it is possible to formulate the prognosis and to predict the probable pathological outcome. Among the “instrumental” research available at the Sol et Salus hospital one can undergo: image diagnostics, medical and biochemical blood sample tests, medical and biochemical blood sample tests (Gait & Motion Analysis Laboratory).
