||Allan Gaw, Michael J. Murphy, Rajeev Srivastava, Robert A. Cowan, Denis St. J. O'Reilly
||This fully revised edition of Clinical Biochemistry offers essential reading for today's medical student and all those who require a concise, practical introduction to this subject. Topics are clearly presented in a series of double-page 'learning units', each covering a particular aspect of clinical biochemistry. Four sections provide a core grounding in the subject:
Introducing clinical biochemistry gives a basic insight in to the workings of a modern hospital laboratory and the interpretation of test results;
Core biochemistry covers the bulk of routine analyses undertaken and their relevance in a clinical setting;
Endocrinology covers the thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and gonadal function testing;
Specialised investigation provides an overview of less requested yet important analyses.
