Tests and diagnosis discussion for Rabies:

If you think you may have been exposed to rabies, the doctor or other health care worker will ask you questions about when you possibly were in contact with an infected animal and if you have any symptoms. Laboratory tests to make sure that the diagnosis is correct involve looking for the rabies virus in your saliva or brain tissue. Unfortunately, this is usually not possible until late in the disease. The doctor must use sophisticated laboratory tests to show rabies or evidence of rabies virus. (Source: excerpt from Rabies, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
