The metabolic steps in the biosynthesis, storage, release, and circulation of the thyroid hormones are detailed and nicely correlated with the various clinically useful studies of thyroid function in this monograph, one of the Medical Technology Series. The discussion of the regulation of thyroidal secretion, brief clinical descriptions of diseases of the thyroid gland, and discussionof the numerous pitfalls in interpreting studies of thyroid function are aimed at the medical technologist. As would be expected in a book for laboratory workers, a good bit of space is devoted to the techniques of performing the different tests.
