Laboratory test (lab test) results are subject to certain errors and in most cases require interpretation depending on the patient's symptoms and signs. An abnormal lab test will normally require repeating to confirm the result. The 3rd edition presents information on common tests as well as rare and highly specialized tests and procedures. Biological variables that may affect test results are discussed, and a focus is placed on reference ranges, diagnostic information, clinical interpretation of laboratory data, interferences, and specimen types. Includes a section on molecular pathology, and tests have been added in.
