How to use "Diagnostic" in context?

The word "diagnostic" means "the act of determining the cause or nature of a disease or complaint." A diagnosis is typically made after a patient has been seen by a doctor and has exhibited specific symptoms. Different cancers have different diagnostic tests that must be performed in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Often, imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans are necessary in order to identify the cancerous cells and track their progress. A doctor may also order blood tests and other tests to rule out other possible causes of the symptoms. After making a diagnosis, the doctor will recommend a treatment plan that is most appropriate for the individual patient.
