Techniques, principle, correlations. 6th Ed. 24 hour and spot urine collection Blood Test Michael L. Bishop, Edward P. Fody, and Larry E. Schoeff. 2010.
Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, principle, correlations. 5th Ed. Other Diagnosis Renal biopsy
the pathologic subtype of the disease
to assess disease activity
to confirm the diagnosis of diseases
to reveal underlying cause and extent of the disease
Renal Ultrasonography
renal venous thrombosis (flank pain, hematuria, or acute renal failure, are present)
takes pictures of the body’s internal organs and soft tissues without using x rays
CT scan
noninvasive procedure that provides a useful image of the kidneys made from a series of tomograms or cross-sectional slices, which are then translated by a computer and displayed on a monitor Araujo, M.P., ... Trevisani, V.F.M. Vena cava thrombosis associated with
