From beginning to end, the most complete, current, and clinically oriented information in the field.

This thoroughly updated Second Edition of Clinical Laboratory Medicine features over 70 chapters--seven new to this edition, including medical laboratory ethics, point-of-care testing, bone marrow transplantation, and specimen testing--providing comprehensive coverage of contemporary laboratory medicine. Sections on molecular diagnostics, cytogenetics, and laboratory management plus the emphasis on interpretation and clinical significance of laboratory tests (why a test or series of tests is being done and what the results mean for the patient) make this a valuable resource for practicing pathologists, residents, fellows, and laboratorians.

Features include:

  • Consistent presentation makes it easy to quickly identify needed information. Each chapter features an introduction, disease status overview that includes the pathophysiology, diagnostic methods, and interpretation (including sensitivity, specificity, precision, and accuracy issues, where applicable). --Extensive coverage of “new” technologies such as molecular pathology, cytogenetics, HLA, and molecular biology, as well ass general management topics including quality, cost accounting, and informatics.
