Diagnosis of Intestinal Parasites
Procedure Manual for the Diagnosis of Intestinal Parasites is the definitive resource for individuals involved in the collection, preparation, and examination of fecal specimens for microscopic diagnosis of intestinal parasitic infections. The book points out the stages of parasites possibly found in a fecal specimen, how to find them, and how to identify them. Specific details on how to effectively use the microscope for parasitic diagnosis are included. This information is missing from most texts and manuals of this kind.
Photomicrographs and original drawings of the various stages and forms of parasites and eggs are used extensively throughout the text, with the photomicrographs printed to a standard scale for easy comparison. More than 400 illustrations in all are included. Biological keys for intestinal amoebae and eggs of various species of helminths are provided.
This book is an essential reference for teachers of diagnostic parasitology and their students, physicians who order fecal examinations for intestinal parasites, nurses or health workers who handle or prepare the specimens for the laboratory, and technologists who receive, process, and examine the specimens.
