How to Approach Unexpected Test Results in Primary Care: Patient Case Examples
We all have those slightly abnormal, entirely unexpected or just unfamiliar lab and test results that we are not quite sure how to handle. In this 60-minute session, we will review 5 common patient scenarios where the results, whether blood, urine or radiologic, may have been unexpected and the work up can often be controversial or unclear. Learn practical and evidence-based management plans for abnormal liver tests, dense breasts on mammograms, subclinical hypothyroidism, microscopic hematuria and trichomonas infections on pap tests.
