Medical tests during the emergency department stay

A wide variety of tests and examinations may be necessary to determine the cause of the sudden onset of symptoms or the extent of the injury.

The most common tests and examinations conducted during an emergency department stay include laboratory and imaging examinations. For the purposes of these tests, the emergency department contains or is closely connected to a laboratory and imaging unit.
