Essential reading for candidates for the MRCPath examination and similar postgraduate examinations in clinical biochemistry. A valuable source of reference for qualified clinical biochemists and for those clinicians in other specialties where clinical biochemistry constitutes an important part of the subject, for example nephrology.

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.
