Introduction of laboratory medicine department
- Laboratory medicine is a discipline that focuses on conducting clinical tests and interpreting the results using specimens such as blood, urine, feces, and body fluids collected from patients. Laboratory medicine is at a critical position in integrating basic medicine such as biology and biochemistry into clinical medicine and consists of the basics for education and various research activities.
- The fields of laboratory medicine include diagnostic hematology, clinical chemistry, diagnostic immunology, clinical microbiology, transfusion medicine, and molecular genetics.
- Laboratory medicine guides many crucial directions for disease detection, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, follow-up, determination of treatment plans, prediction of prognosis, and monitoring of treatment effects through health check-ups or screening tests. Furthermore, laboratory medicine plays a leading role in the development of novel testing methods and reagents including molecular genetic tests.
