Modern medicine is highly complex and investigations are a key part of the diagnostic process. With major advances in technology there are thousands of clinical and laboratory tests available. This reference provides a patient-oriented approach to investigation where key symptoms and signs are described along with tests that may be of value in reaching a diagnosis. You will also find specialty-centered content which provides a comprehensive review of all available tests within a given subject. The reference emphasizes which tests are of value, when tests are not likely to be helpful, along with pitfalls in the interpretation of results. The aim is of the content is to provide a more rational method of investigation and prevent over-investigation which is expensive for the hospital and unpleasant for the patient.
The contributors are all active clinicians who are engaged in medical practice, so appreciate the problems faced by junior doctors. The reference should also be of value to senior medical students who will be facing finals examinations, and who will soon be on the wards and responsible for ordering tests on their patients.
