No: Why do you think something is wrong? The first clues are your symptoms. Before ordering tests, a doctor should talk to you about symptoms and do a good physical exam. The tests you mention are all different ways of imaging the body. There are many other tests out there, but nothing as good as a doctor who takes time to listen and think before ordering a bunch of tests!
