Microscopic Urine Sediment: Analysis and Findings

  • Josefine NeuendorfEmail author


This chapter enables readers to practice evaluating and diagnosing urine sediments in native specimens, firstly on the basis of schematically presented typical constellations of findings and then on the basis of real photographs of urine sediment. To this end, the individual components are named and their semi-quantitative quantity determined in each of the photographs on which the analyses are based. These analyses are presented in the form of a proper laboratory report in the “Diagnosis” section.
