In brief: Connective Tissue Dx

Somethying you have symptomatically or on your labs that raises the spectre of connective tissue disease.
The panel can diagnose, sle, sjogren's, scleroderma, and mixed connecrtive tissue disease.

In brief: Controversial

I would suggest that if lupus is being considered, a rheumatologist would be more helpful and more cost-effective than obtaining a lupus panel.
