See ordering doc: Diagnostic tests are ordered to aid a physician in advising patients and are not intended to be directly understood by patients. Responsible test ordering by physicians means the physician is ordering a test to guide a decision. If a treating physician is not trained to articulate the significance or treatment options from a test result, a referral to a specialist who can, may be necessary.
