Practical Clinical Biochemistry: Methods and Interpretations

by Ranjna Chawla

Modern medicine is rapidly advancing and laboratory research work has provided the perfect backdrop to the process. Laboratory tests and investigations have become the mainstay of today’s clinical practice so much so that the emphasis seems to be shifting from the study of patients to the study of investigative data. This book consists of 50 chapters. The salient features of the present revised edition comprise of the following: details on evaluation and monitoring of QC data, new diagnostic indicators of different diseases, new chapter on therapeutic drug monitoring, usefulness of some tests over other tests, and addition of different new techniques. A complete and comprehensive book on Practical Clinical Biochemistry comprises of about 370 case reports and latest developments. For better comprehension and to make the book easy to grasp by the students case reports have been added at the end of each chapter. This book has become more students friendly and attractive for the teachers. The case reports will be of immense value for the students and teachers and in the long run bridge the gap between clinicians and clinical laboratories.
