Description

Written by Fred F. Ferri, MD, FACP, author of many best-selling books for primary care practice, Ferri’s Best Test, 2nd Edition, equips you to quickly choose the most efficient and cost-effective diagnostic approach, including imaging or lab tests. Updates throughout, including more than 180 new tests...additional diagnostic modalities...and new algorithms...make this unique and user-friendly reference a must for determining which diagnostic tests to order. A portable, pocket-sized format allows for convenient consultation anytime, anywhere.

Key Features

  • Offers concise, well-organized guidance to the most common lab tests and diagnostic imaging modalities, all in one single resource, that makes reference remarkably fast and easy.
  • Describes the most common imaging studies for each organ system, reviewing their indications, advantages, disadvantages, and approximate costs to simplify your decision-making process.
  • Examines over 384 laboratory tests, describing the normal range of results in adult patients, typical abnormalities (positive tests, increased or decreased values), and the likeliest causes.
  • Explores 231 common diseases and disorders, providing algorithms to help you select the single best test for diagnosing each condition.
  • Features a portable, pocket-sized format that allows for convenient consultation anytime, anywhere.
