These examinations cover pre-natal, gestational, and newborn assessments along with the examination of the age which is divided into two parts. One is a test of the entire age and the other is the evaluation of the remaining age for both a healthy person and patient. Its general examination can be done by Prakriti and Vikriti and in the special examination separate special expressions called Parikshya Bhavas have been examined.
