The Artery is your community for finding solutions to your day-to-day clinical chemistry questions. Last month, several answers were found to questions ranging from "Does your laboratory measure free prostate specific antigen (PSA)?" to “What is your best strategy for planning a project timeline?". Read on for the most discussed on the Artery in December.
What to Note About Free PSA
@David Alter, MD DABCC
Does your laboratory measure free prostate specific antigen (PSA)? Read and participate in this in-depth discussion that highlights many significant aspects of ordering, performing, and assessing free PSA tests in labs.
Implementing the New eGFR Equation
@Liyun Cao, PhD, DABCC
A new estimated glomerular filtration rate equation that does not include race has made its way to many laboratories. Arterians discuss personal experiences with implementation of the new equation. Has your lab considered switching?
Managing Time Management
@Dustin Bunch, PhD, DABCC
In any job, time management plays a key role in the outcome of a project. Laboratory leaders provide useful tips for anyone struggling with completing a complex project on time. What is your best strategy for planning a project timeline?
