Diagnostic Testing

A diagnostic test may be necessary to gather more information about a student’s health, illness, condition, or concern. Diagnostic tests include: blood tests, urine tests, swabs, ultrasounds, CT scans (computed tomography), MRI’s and X-rays.

Some diagnostic tests are done in the Health & Wellness Centre. Other tests are arranged off campus at a hospital or diagnostic clinic. Wait times for test results ranges from 1 to 30 days. Students with abnormal test results are notified by telephone or e-mail to call the Health & Wellness Centre. We do not usually call students with normal results. Students are welcome to call and book an appointment to follow up with the doctor or call and speak to a nurse about their results.
