Why physicians need diagnostic management services?

Quiet often physicians find it difficult to diagnose the illness of patient. To overcome this problem, many diagnostic centers assist doctors by providing diagnostic management services. These services include diagnostic tests and procedures, which help physicians to confirm presence of any medical condition.
There are numerous medical conditions for which diagnosis are done. Some of them include allergy, neurological disorders, sleep, cardiovascular diseases and many more. However, neurological disorders include Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer disease. To diagnose any disorder varieties of medical scans are done on the patients including MRI, CT scan, EMG, EEG and PET.
Following are some of the diagnostic tests for diagnosing neurological disorders-
Angiography- This test finds out the blockage in the arteries or in the veins. It takes three approximately three hours of time to perform the test excluding resting time that needs six to eight hours. Hospitals conduct these tests.
Biopsy- In biopsy, surgeons extract small portion of tissue from the body to examine it. Other than this, biopsies of muscle or nerve are also done which helps to identify neuromuscular disorders. When a small portion of muscle or nerve is extracted from the body, it is studied under a microscope.
In order to remove the nerve or a muscle, either a slit is made on the skin or it is removed surgically.
During the brain biopsy, practitioners determine the type of tumor through various tests. If the tumor is detected then surgery is performed to remove a tumor. These tests are performed in a hospital and the process is riskier in comparison to other procedure and involves a long recovery time.
Brain scans-these scans are done to detect tumors, or hemorrhage in the brain.
Cerebrospinal fluid analysis- small amount of the fluid is removed in this process. The fluid is then taken for testing in order to detect any brain hemorrhage, blood loss or diagnose infection in the brain or in the spinal cord. The procedure is performed in the hospital. Procedure known as a lumbar puncture or spinal tap is performed to remove the fluid.
Note- not all diagnosis can be done by the doctor and requires getting assistance from the diagnostic services.
