One Monday morning, Sophia went to her physician complaining for some illness. Then her doctor told her that she has to go to a diagnostic center to help them see what possible is she suffering from.

The physician gave her the requisition slip and so, Sophia went to the diagnostic center immediately. Laboratory tests were done.

  • Would Sophia be treated correctly if the Medical Technologist reported wrong results?
  • What could happen to the patient if she has given wrong results?


  1. Hi, MJ. Nice post. Indeed test results should be accurate as the doctor depends on them. Medical technologists should consider themselves as doctor's partners in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.

    A doctor is like a general who relies on intelligence for strategy and troop movements. The medical technologist provides such intelligence. From this intelligence the doctor chooses the best chemical weapon in the pharmacy's arsenal to take out the aliens taking residence in the patient's body. Ooops, sounds like Star Wars already. I better end here before I discuss the Battle of Geonosis next. Take care and keep on blogging.
