Dr. Weller, Professor of Internal Medicine, and Dr. Greene, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, at the University of Michigan have put together a much needed volume for the medical community. This very useful programmed text is provided with a reference book containing 35 figures in black and white that elucidate the techniques of urine testing. Also included is a series of 40 slides with a portable viewer showing the microscopic appearance of urinary sediments, both stained and unstained. The microphotographs are excellent and their significance in various clinical conditions is described.
Beginning with the basic principles of proper urine collection, the reader is guided in a simple and logical way through the major causes of error in interpretation. The significance of the different findings is emphasized by multiple choice questions and illustrated by reference to the color slides or the photomicrographs in the reference book.
