instrumental diagnostic studies (or tests)
Explanation:
Where I work (The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas), tests are commonly called "studies," sometimes "investigations." The set of tests, as a process, is called a "work up" ("the patient is being worked up").

In a sense, "diagnostic tests" is a redundant term, but it is very common.

"Instrumental" is an overkill, unless the context is operant conditioning, but if the term is in the text, there is no way out it.
