Course Overview

Discover the theory and techniques used in one of the most commonly performed tests in the diagnostic laboratory: urinalysis. A urinalysis is used to test for a variety of disorders, like kidney disease and diabetes, and includes analyzing the appearance, concentration and content of urine. Gain valuable understanding of the processes during chemical testing and the microscopic examination of urine and, explore the importance of quality assurance processes. Review renal anatomy and physiology to correlate urinalysis with pathological conditions of the kidneys.

With the skills you gain in this course, you will be able to identify normal and abnormal constituents of urine sediments microscopically, explain the tests performed during chemical analysis of urine, describe the physical characteristics of urine from a healthy individual and discuss the physiological processes that lead to the formation of urine.
