In Clinical Pathology of Pancreatic Disorders, leading medical authorities comprehensively survey the various types of pancreatic disorders amenable to clinical laboratory tests and review in detail how these tests are used for the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of patients. The diseases covered in depth range from endocrine, neoplastic, and exocrine disorders to inflammatory and chronic disorders, and include diabetes, the digestive disturbances associated with pancreatic insufficiency, and current trends in pancreas transplantation. The laboratory tests detailed here for each disorder have been chosen for their high sensitivity and specificity; many are also excellent for monitoring the efficacy of treatment.
Clinical Pathology of Pancreatic Disorders brings together in one place the most detailed and comprehensive tutorial review of pancreatic clinical pathology available in a single volume. It will serve today's physicians-particularly gastroenterologists and clinical pathologists-as a unique and indispensable resource for understanding and applying the newest techniques in pancreatic pathology and physiology.
