  • From the author of the popular Clinical Chemistry medical student textbook.
  • Although there are many competing texts on clinical chemistry, the vast majority concentrate on the technology; this book concentrates on the clinical.
  • Ideally suited for preparation for the MRCPath and similar examination.
  • Essential reading for candidates for the MRCPath examination and similar postgraduate examinations in clinical biochemistry. The book gives an overview of the acquisition of data, as well as concentrating on clinical aspects of the subject, giving detailed coverage of all conditions where clinical biochemistry is used in diagnosis and management. In common with other diagnostic specialties clinical biochemistry now uses an increasing number of techniques involving the 'new biology': these are covered in this book. It is also increasingly common for medically qualified clinical biochemists to become involved in the clinical management of patients (eg nutritional support) and material on this will be included.

    Published Reviews "An invaluable resource... Information is wide ranging and detailed but also very practical, being applicable to the real questions about real patients that we have to deal with every day. There are lots of tables for easy reference. I heartily recommend this book."
