Special Issue "Urinalysis and Urinary Tract Infections in Elderly Hospitalized Patients"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: clinical utility; urinary tract infections; elderly, internal medicine; laboratory testing
The purpose of this Special Issue is threefold. First, we will review various methods for urinalysis, including the more recently introduced automated technology. Second, we will discuss the clinical utility and disutility of various findings. Finally, we will discuss indications for testing. We will limit our discussion to testing, abnormal findings, and diseases in the elderly.
