Lab and Imaging Testing

What is laboratory testing?

Laboratory testing refers to medical testing that’s typically performed in-office and commonly used to assist in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions.

Lapeer Pediatrics provides routine labs, scans, screenings, blood work, digital X-rays, and more extensive testing.

Why would I need lab work?

At Lapeer Pediatrics, your pediatrician might suggest in-house labs to:

  • Evaluate your child’s organ function
  • Screen for genetic conditions
  • Assess your child’s health
  • Look for an infection
  • Check your child’s cholesterol, inflammatory markers, and other factors

Your pediatrician can help your child prepare for labs. For example, with some blood tests, your child might need to stop taking certain medications or fast for up to 12 hours.

Be sure you and your child follow the detailed instructions you’re given to get the most accurate test results.

What lab work is available?

The team at Lapeer Pediatrics offers effective lab tests onsite, including tests for strep, COVID, flu, RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), and mono. Lapeer Pediatrics also tests for lead levels, pregnancy, blood sugar and Hemoglobin levels to determine anemia.

Most tests involve blood work or urine samples. Other labs can be sent out to reference labs to give you and your child access to an impressive selection of available testing and screening.

Flu test

Your child can have different types of flu tests. Some flu tests work by detecting the part of the virus that prompts your child’s immune response. Other flu tests identify the virus’s genetic material. Flu testing can typically be done via a blood test, a throat or nose swab, or a respiratory specimen.

Strep testing

A strep throat test typically involves a simple throat swab to detect the presence of group A streptococcus bacteria that can cause strep throat and other infections like pneumonia.


X-rays are a type of radiation. Their electromagnetic waves produce detailed images of the inside of your body. An X-ray shows parts of your body in different shades of black and white due to the different tissues that absorb varying amounts of radiation.

Our office offer convenient on-site digital X-ray to help diagnose bones, joints, chest and abdominal complaints.
