This unique new resource directs readers to the most efficient and cost-effective imaging and laboratory studies for any diagnostic challenge. Written by best-selling author Fred Ferri, MD, FACP, FERRI'S BEST TEST presents complete guidance on both radiologic and laboratory approaches in a single, user-friendly source. It is available in soft-cover book format, and as software for most handheld devices. Describes the most common imaging studies for each organ system, reviewing their indications advantages disadvantages and approximate costs. Examines over 200 laboratory tests, describing the normal range of results in adult patients typical abnormalities (positive tests, increased or decreased values) and the likeliest causes Explores 222 common diseases and disorders, providing algorithms to help readers select the single best test for diagnosing each condition. Uses a concise, well-organized format to make reference remarkably easy. Available both as a pocket-sized, soft-cover book, and as software for most handheld devices.
