A complete full-color guide to selecting the correct laboratory test and interpreting the results –- covering the entire field of clinical pathology

Laboratory Medicine is the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and well-illustrated guide available for learning how to order the correct laboratory test and understand the clinical significance of the results. The book features an easy-to-follow, consistent presentation for each disease discussed. Chapters begin with a brief description of the disorder followed by a discussion that includes tables detailing the laboratory evaluation of specific disorders, diagnosis, baseline tests to exclude diagnostic possibilities, and clinical indications that warrant further screening and special testing.

With new, increasingly expensive and complicated tests appearing almost daily, Laboratory Medicine is required reading for students and physicians who want to keep abreast of the latest testing procedures and maximize accuracy and patient safety.
