Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In general, laboratory assessment of the pediatric urologic patient is not as extensive as in the adult counterpart. Patients tend to be healthier and there are no recommended routine preoperative laboratory screening tests for pediatric urologic patients. However, there are certain instances when laboratory examination in pediatric urology is invaluable. This chapter will outline the most common laboratory tests used in pediatric urology, demonstrating the clinical scenarios in which each test should be employed.
