  • A head MRI is a painless, noninvasive test that produces detailed images of your brain and brain stem. It's a useful tool for detecting a number of conditions.
  • The follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level test measures the level of FSH found within human serum. FSH is responsible for promoting and sustaining ovarian follicular growth in females and spermatogenesis in males. Your doctor will order an FSH ...
  • A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
  • In some cases, your doctor may decide that he or she needs a sample of your tissue or your cells to help diagnose an illness or identify a cancer. This removal of tissue or cells is called a biopsy. While a biopsy may sound scary, it's important t...

  • Positron emission tomography (PET) is a sophisticated medical imaging technique. It uses a radioactive tracer to pinpoint differences in tissues on the molecular level. PET scans can detect differences in body functions, such as blood flow, use of...
  • A PET scan is an imaging test that allows your doctor to check for diseases in your body. The scan uses a special dye that has radioactive tracers.
  • Osmolality measures the concentration of all particles in a fluid. For example, a thick, sugary syrup has significantly higher osmolality than a cup of water with just a pinch of sugar. The urine osmolality test measures the amount of several comp...
