The analysis of urine is the oldest diagnostic test. Today urinalysis remains one of the most commonly performed tests. These articles, presented in two parts, provide an overview of the physiology of urine production, the evolution of urinalysis testing, the tests routinely performed, and the clinical significance of those tests.
Article 1 reviews the physiology of urine and the history and current procedures in urinalysis. Article 2 discusses the meaning and clinical significance of the chemical tests represented by those little colored squares on the test strip.
