Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephen E. Kahn, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This book is an extensively illustrated softcover book covering fundamental aspects of clinical biochemistry at a medical undergraduate level. The text is uniquely structured into double-page learning units on clinical topics instead of in the traditional chapter format.
Purpose: The purpose of this text is to illustrate and describe significant aspects of clinical biochemistry, in conjunction with problem-solving and case histories, in an abbreviated format (i.e., two pages per learning unit).
Audience: The audience is the medical undergraduate student who has already gained the basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry. The text may also be used to teach advanced medical students and junior residents about key practical aspects of selected clinical areas of biochemistry.
Features: The book is intentionally overillustrated and relies minimally on text. It uses case histories and problem-solving methods, but suffers from a complete lack of additional references.
Assessment: The book provides a useful compilation of clinical biochemistry topics in a short, practical, well-illustrated, problem-based fashion. It does require fundamental knowledge of biochemistry, anatomy, and physiology and must be used in conjunction with a practical teaching course or with other materials. As a companion text to highlight various basics of clinical information, it is adequate.

From the Publisher
"The new edition of Clinical Biochemistry covers all aspects of the subject needed by medical students. Great layout with flow charts, clinical 'boxes', summary points, case histories and clinical photographs. This book successfully relates clinical biochemistry to the care of the patient. Covers clinical biochemistry from the point of view of the clinician using the diagnostic service and doesn't overburden with description of laboratory techniques. Useful not only through medical school but also to improve understanding of biochemistry at more advanced levels for clinical practice."
3rd Year Medical Student, Edinburgh University, September 2004.

This book is very good as an overview to the subject of clinical biochemistry, and it is clear, non-waffly and easy to read, with good colourful diagrams.
