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.

Blood tests, urine tests and swabs are often 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 email. We do not usually call students with normal results. Students are welcome to visit the front desk and see the triage nurse or book a follow up appointment with a doctor to discuss their results.
