diagnostic codes
alphanumeric codes used to identify diagnoses for the purposes of computer storage.

Completely numeric code systems offer limitless volumetric capacity, a disadvantage in a working hospital.
diagnostic data
data with finite values as opposed to continuous data, e.g. the number of puppies born per litter.
diagnostic disciplines
the disciplines applied to the making of diagnoses. Includes clinical medicine, surgery and reproduction and also epidemiology, pathology, microbiology, parasitology and toxicology.
diagnostic hypotheses
preliminary list of potential diagnoses.
diagnostic kits
commercially available tests used in the diagnosis of disease. Most are intended for biochemical estimation or the qualitative detection of antigen or antibody. Many are based on an ELISA.
