The Bone and Mineral Manual incorporates the most up-to-date laboratory methods, techniques, and approaches for designing strategies and investigating the pathophysiology of bone and mineral metabolism. It presents information in a succinct format that allows practitioners to find the answers they need quickly and easily--even while the patient encouter is still in progress. This practical guide will become a frequent companion of endocriniologists, bone and mineral specialists, and nephrologists.
