Tsai JJ; Yeun JY; Kumar VA; Don BR.

This study demonstrated that laboratory-performed urinalyses were often inaccurate in comparison to those interpreted by nephrologists. The authors advocate for either greater training of this expertise among physicians or improved training among laboratory technicians to reduce the potential for diagnostic errors.
