Editorial Reviews

I would recommend this book to physicians as worthwhile reading material, particularly those who... are starting out in their careers. This text would also be an excellent choice for the laboratory scientist seeking a concise view of the clinical aspects of laboratory testing.

— <i>Canadian Journal of Pathology</i>

Appropriate utilization of clinical laboratory tests is an important part of practicing medicine in the 21st century. Dr. Naugler has done an excellent job by providing the most up-to-date information in a relatively complicated subject in an easy-to-follow format.

Finally, a highly readable, practical guide for physicians that focuses on the ordering of laboratory tests based on the underlying clinical context. A valuable resource that promises to advance health care quality through promoting patient-centred, appropriate care.
