In brief: Maybe imaging
In most cases, it is not really necessary to do cat scans or mri's, but could be a choice in specific instances.
Eeg's may help if certain patterns are present, but likely also elective and not vital. Blood tests may precede meds, but merely to assure safety if side event potential might cause harm.
