Mind Maps in Clinical Chemistry presents information about clinical laboratory techniques for junior healthcare professionals, medical residents and students. Each chapter enables readers to suggest, arrange and interpret clinical chemistry tests effectively with the objective of enhancing clinical care.

Chapters of this part cover a range of topics focused on biochemical analysis including tumor detection, special topics in clinical biochemistry, the clinical chemistry of diseases, lab instrumentation and reference ranges of diseases.

Key Features

  • - Topic-based presentation through 31 chapters in 6 sections
  • - Coverage of practical and theoretical knowledge
  • - Lucid and integrated presentation of concepts
  • - Wide range of topics covered including tumor detection, special topics in clinical biochemistry, the clinical chemistry of diseases, lab instrumentation, and reference ranges in medical diagnosis
  • - Packed with practical lab testing information

Mind Maps in Clinical Chemistry is an ideal textbook for quick and easy learning of clinical laboratory knowledge for undergraduate and graduate students as well as teachers instructing courses at these levels.


This book treats clinical chemistry as an interdisciplinary subject to teach the importance of lab both for students in basic science as well as clinical medicine.

The approach to clinical chemistry in real clinical situations requires knowledge, experience and an integrated and clinically relevant model. I have attempted to bring this integrated model together in the book.

The book has been written in a lucid manner and is packed with practical approach of lab tests targeting undergraduate and also 1st postgraduate students of various streams of medicine. The reader should gain the knowledge and understanding of the value, limitations and interpretation of lab tests in modern medicine.
