The text prepares students and physicians to use applications of probability and statistics in the care of the individual patient. The emphasis is on using this data in problems of diagnosis,treatment,and follow-up care. Each chapter includes a clinical case that demonstrates the application of biostatistics in the daily practice of medicine. The text is distinguished from Glantz' Biostatistics in two ways: 1) a greater focus on epidemiological data as it relates to biostatistics,and 2) more clinically oriented approach. Glantz' strength lies in its excellent introductory approach to the topic; Inglefinger is the logical next step into the clinical application. This edition features all-new references to the literature and many new clinical case examples.
