Diagnosis & Treatment

The team’s approach to diagnosis depends on the symptoms experienced by each patient. First, a Hospital Medicine Program physician conducts a full physical examination and obtains a thorough medical history from the patient. Next, based on this information, the team orders the appropriate medical tests, which may include:

  • Blood tests
  • Cardiac tests, such as an electrocardiograms (electrodes test that records the heart’s electrical activity) or an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound)
  • Imaging studies, such as an x-ray, CT scan, or MRI scan.

In some cases, when the diagnosis is not clear, the team may order additional tests, which may include:

  • Biopsy
  • Consultations with surgeons, Heart & Vascular Institute cardiologists, Digestive Disease Institute gastroenterologists, or physicians at the Medical Subspecialties Institute’s Infectious Disease Program, or other subspecialty physicians.

After the diagnosis is confirmed, the Hospital Medicine Program team discusses the findings with the care team and the patient, before starting him or her on an appropriate, individualized treatment plan.
