Comparison and interpretation of urinalysis performed by a nephrologist versus a hospital-based clinical laboratory.
Tsai JJ, Yeun JY, Kumar VA, Don BR. Am J Kidney Dis. 2005;46:820-829.

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.
