Molecular Diagnostics: 12 Tests That Changed Everything - Molecular and Translational Medicine (Hardback)W. Edward Highsmith (editor)
- Not available
Molecular Diagnostics: 12 Tests That Changed Everything focuses on specific laboratory tests and emphasizes how the availability of these tests has altered how clinicians treat their patients. Presented as a standard outline, each chapter focuses on a specific molecular test and provides background on the test and its clinical applications. Continuing with some discussion on how the test is done, interpreted, and used clinically, each chapter then concludes with a discussion of how that test has changed the way medicine is practiced with respect to the disease or condition in question.
Authored by renowned experts in the field, Molecular Diagnostics: 12 Tests That Changed Everything is a valuable resource for pathologists, pathology residents, laboratory directors, development personnel, lab medicine fellows and those working in the broad area of oncology, infectious disease and genetics.

From the reviews:
"This book is intended for molecular pathologists, clinical laboratory directors, genetics/pathology residents/fellows, and clinical laboratory science students. It also would be of great interest to practitioners who use test results from these methodologies in their daily practice -- infectious disease physicians, oncologists, geneticists, neonatologists, obstetricians, etc. -- interested in the technology behind the tests. ... This is the book to read if you want a quick, concise, and relatively current update on molecular diagnostic tests that have truly changed medical practice." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2014)
