In brief: ANCA and biopsy
The most useful blood test is an anca with titer and pattern, and pr3/mpo confirmation.
Biopsy of the affected tissue is also important. Imaging studies of the lungs and sinuses can be useful as well as blood and urine tests looking for kidney damage. Finally, EMG might be needed if there is concern for nerve damage.
