Clinical Notes

The examination of urine is one of the oldest practices in medicine. A complete urinalysis includes physical, chemical, and microscopic examinations. Results provide a wealth of information about the patient, both in terms of differential diagnosis, and by exclusion of many conditions when the urinalysis is “normal”. Its role in diagnosis and management of renal diseases is pivotal.
