The clinical laboratory is indispensable in the practice of aerospace medicine. The optimal tests, techniques and procedures, along with their clinical correlations for judicious application are matters of continuing research and development. The AGARD Aerospace Medical Panel Specialists Meeting held in Ankara, Turkey, 23 October 1975, was directed towards improving diagnostic accuracy, enhancing utilization of diagnostic resources, and providing increased impetus toward standardization of clinical laboratory methods in aerospace medicine in the international community. Papers were included on the following topics Investigations on chemical, physical, physiological, radiographic and electrical test techniques, methodologies and applications in aerospace medicine Research, development and evaluation of pertinent tests, techniques and procedures in aerospace medicine Results of clinical and epidemiological application of these tests, techniques and procedures Limitations of the tests, techniques and procedures due to variability, interference and inadequacies.
