Question Grouping The Work up Tests?

Can I do like this; 1- CXR 2- AXR or should I be writing 1- CXR and AXR?

It's not wise to put CXR and AXR in different lines but you can put CT brain and MRI brain in different lines as they are somewhat different modalities specially if the case indicated the need for both.
Similarly, it looks foolish to put CBC and Hb level in different lines but I think it's OK to say CBC and ESR in different lines as these are usually ordered separately in USA.

Like for example you can put ALT, AST, Bilirubin, Albumin, ALP, GGT, and liver functions tests in one line.
Like for example you can put TSH, T3, T4, Antithyroglobulin together yet you can put thyroid nuclear scan in a separate line if you wish.

I can continue putting more examples but I think you got the idea

Wait a minute ...
This is just my personal opinion
No reference at all
No proof at all
Don't take it for granted
Do what you think is best
