About this item


In the medical laboratory, some of the uncommonly ordered hormone tests can have a very significant meaning.  This specialty testing is performed by an elite group of MLTs who help investigate results.  Do we really understand the theory behind the results we so carefully quantify?  As an immunochemistry supervisor Melissa has had the opportunity to consult and review some of these cases with specialists.  The investigation into seemingly unfitting results has sometimes produced a very different diagnosis for the patients than originally suspected.  These are their stories.
