A Textbook of Pathology book cover

A Textbook of Pathology

A Textbook of Pathology is designed for students following a diagnostic or primary health care profession and has been written specifically for health science students. By relating pathology to disease processes, changes in the body, and signs and symptoms, students can build an understanding of the cause of disease as it presents in the clinical setting.  Covering general and systemic pathology, the author takes a practical look at the investigation of disease, and brings an innovative approach to the study of pathology. A review of basic anatomy and physiology at the beginning of each chapter provides an excellent preparation to the related pathology, and the study of pathophysiological processes help the reader to bridge the gap between the structural and functional changes that occur in disease.  The exploration of clinical features of key conditions allows the student to relate the condition and its underlying pathology to the living patient, while the inclusion of pathology test results and symptomatology tables assist in the assessment and interpretation of data for diagnosis and provide a contextual link to the study of disease that helps students understand the relevance of pathology to their health profession.  Students can also enhance their learning experience and test their understanding through an engaging and comprehensive electronic learning resource that supports the text.
