9780071626743: Laboratory Medicine: The Diagnosis of Disease in the Clinical Laboratory (Lange Basic Science)

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

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

"The editor and authors are well respected in their fields of expertise - this is an all-star cast....This book nicely fills the gap between comprehensive clinical laboratory science texts and the traditional and well-recognized, definitive laboratory medicine texts....It would be perfect for medical students and practicing physicians and it would be a perfect companion textbook for those teaching laboratory medicine in a medical school curriculum. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

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.
