the role of clinical biochemistery as diagnostic tool in diagnosis of bladder cancer
A 2000 word essay on diagnostic methods based on extensive literature research.
You can chose any disease or disorder where Clinical Biochemistry plays an important role in diagnosis or monitoring, use the journals and books recommended on the reading list to guide you. You need to review the method(s) employed in the diagnostic process and
explore the research into these. You are expected to critically discuss any benefits, risks or limitations associated with the current diagnostic approach, the current state of research and the potential for future developments. The test(s) evaluated can include laboratory
based methods as well as Point-of-care testing or patient self-testing.
Current analytical practice should be outlined and critically evaluated. A good essay would also include a discussion of ongoing research with the potential of developing new methods. In your essay you need to identify the biochemical marker(s) on which the analysis is based
and summarise their biological function and relation to disease.
Further points to consider include the method of the test, the demand for testing, the potential for point-of-care or self-testing, specificity and sensitivity of the method and limitations of the analytical method as well as current research and potential futuredevelopments to improve the current method or develop alternatives.
Need to talk about Biomarker for bladder cancer and their role as screening test for diagnosis of this specific cancer.
In introduction, writer first need to explain the role of biochemistry in diagnosis of diseases and malignancy, later he needs to list the biomarker involved in bladder cancer and their use as diagnostic tool.
