Infectious Disease Diagnosis

Infectious diseases — which can be caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites or viruses — come in many forms. They can be spread through direct and indirect contact with humans and animals, as well as through contaminated foods and insects.

Though you may work diligently to keep contagions at bay by getting vaccinated, following recommended hygiene (like proper handwashing) and practicing proper food handling, infections are unavoidable sometimes.

Some infectious diseases aren’t contagious, while others can be easily transmitted. Understanding what caused the infection helps doctors treat your symptoms and points to the necessary measures to keep the infection from spreading to other people.

Your doctor may order diagnostic tests, like:

  • Cultures 
  • Biopsy
  • Blood or urine tests
  • Imaging tests
  • Spinal taps 
  • Stool samples
  • Throat swabs
