Description : The technology and practice of pathology is advancing at an ever increasing pace. The best practices of only a few years ago may today be out of date. Nowhere is this seen more than in the very basic subject of test selection and interpretation. The Handbook of Clinical Pathology is a useful, succinct reference for the practice of pathology. With contributions by 20 noted authors, this 2nd edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the practice of clinical pathology today. The Handbook of Clinical Pathology is organized and presented in a new, clear format that makes this book both useful and attractive. The sequence of discussion in the text has been restructured to reflect new priorities in the practice. Among the subjects the text covers are renal function tests, urinalysis, cerebrospinal fluid, liver function tests, assessment of myocardial injury, toxicology and substance abuse testing, cytogenetics, and immunodeficiency diseases. New chapters on inherited metabolic disease, molecular diagnosis, viral infections, pediatric laboratory medicine, and andrology and fertility assessment, have been added. The Handbook of Clinical Pathology presents extensive information in tables, figures, and algorithms for quick reference. Physicians and other health care professionals will find The Handbook of Clinical Pathology a valued reference, useful every day.

Description : Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook series are now available in this great value pack. Written by biomedical scientists and clinicians to disseminate the fundamental scientific principles that underpin clinical medicine, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences provides a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry, and an investigation of the traditional piers of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, and thoroughly illustrated, it is the ideal introduction to the basic medical sciences for junior medical students, and a perfect revision guide for senior students. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Pathology provides an accessible and easy-to-use handbook for medical students and doctors, which succinctly explains the pathology behind important and common diseases relevant to the whole range of medical and surgical specialties. It covers basic general pathological principles and follows a systems-based approach, highlighting the most common conditions in each area. Macroscopic and microscopic pathological features are described, as well as relevant immunohistochemical, molecular, and genetic information. Up-to-date staging information is provided for all major malignancies, and reference symbols are used to highlight important points and provide quick links between related topics. This essential guide to pathology is an invaluable resource for medical students, pathology trainees, junior doctors, and biomedical scientists.
Description : Unique among current literature as a rich source of clinical case material, this book can be used by veterinary students as a reader-friendly introduction to the subject and as the primary textbook in clinical pathology coursework. With its multitude of cases and images, the book is also a useful resource for faculty members to enhance instruction. Veterinary Clinical Pathology: An Introduction aims to provide the veterinary student with a clear, concise overview of basic mechanisms without being overwhelming. Clinical cases enhance the learning experience.

Reader-friendly textbook Features innovative case-based approach Provides clear and concise overview of basic mechanisms Practical text for veterinary students, instructors and clinicians alike Students, instructors, and veterinary clinicians seeking a concise, practical handbook will find Veterinary Clinical Pathology: An Introduction invaluable.
Description : Practicing specialists in pathology, laboratory medicine, and obstetrics comprehensively summarize the latest scientific findings and their experiences in the use and interpretation of laboratory testing in patients who are pregnant or experiencing recurrent pregnancy loss. Topics of interest include the effects of normal physiological changes on test results, test selection for diagnosis, changes in reference ranges, monitoring the pregnant patient, new technologies, and the limitations of laboratory testing. The authors not only clearly explain currently used test methods and technologies for the nontechnical reader, but also provide comprehensive details for laboratory professionals. The comprehensive appendix that compiles published normal reference ranges by first, second, and third trimester consttitutes an excellent resource for professionals caring for pregnant women.
Description : This is the first comprehensive reference work on toxicologic pathology, an emerging field that integrates the mechanisms of toxic injury with the resulting pathology. Chapters deal systematically with organ-specific toxic injury, describing the mechanisms of injury, morphological expression of the injury, and evaluation of the pathology. Additional chapters introduce the field to the uninitiated and address such topics as techniques used for morphological evaluation, risk assessment, and regulatory aspects. The Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology will quickly establish itself as the classic reference work in this field for years to come. Comprehensive, "user friendly" reference text on toxicologic pathology Large, easy-to-use 8 1/2" x 11", double-column format Systematic approach to each organ or system More than 500 illustrations and 90 tables complement the text Over 2,000 references for easy access to the primary literature Unique chapters written by leading authorities
