Laboratory Studies

Laboratory investigation should be tailored to appropriate studies based on both the history and the physical findings and may include serology and/or skin tests.


Imaging Studies

See the list below:

  • Chest radiography

  • Computerized tomography

  • Magnetic resonance imaging

  • Gallium scanning

Ocular imaging studies, including anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ultrasound biomicroscopy, are used to identify possible causes of inflammation and to understand the extent of structural changes caused by inflammation. Optic nerve imaging studies and visual field tests are useful to evaluate the stage of glaucoma and to plan appropriate treatment.



See the list below:

  • Conjunctival biopsy

  • Vitreous biopsy

  • Anterior chamber paracentesis
