This edition contains new, rewritten, or updated coverage of dozens of tests, including IgE, arsenic, blood smear, chromosomal analysis, CBC, cyanide, cytokines, heroin, HIV, influenza, macular degeneration risk analysis, SCID, sexual assault/attack, ABG, bilirubin tests, C-reactive protein (hs CRP) and glucose, cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, colonoscopy, ERCP, CT, MRI, and many others.
