DiagnosticReport _search

post/DiagnosticReport/_search
Page View

This resource contains clinical context for diagnostic tests (e.g., lab tests, pathology, imaging) performed on a patient or group of patients. Diagnostic reports may contain discrete results, images, or codes.

You can review, retrieve, create, or update diagnostic reports.

_search

Query for details about a diagnostic test completed for a patient or group of patients from one provider.

This is a flexible option with query parameters to refine your search. The response returns a bundle of resources, known as a searchset bundle type. Learn about bundles and bundle types in our FHIR® glossary.
