Reviews

"True to the previous editions, this guide addresses most things you might want to know about laboratory testing or diagnostic imaging.This edition continues the tradition of excellence of the previous editions. You should get it if you want/need a broad overview of diagnostic imaging and laboratory testing in current clinical practice."-Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital) Doody Review: 83/100

"This is a very popular handbook among medical and health professionals simply because it is very useful: a quick reference work to a large number of diseases and disorders, and the tests for their diagnosis. Nano Khilnani
