Pathology reports against:

  • Lipids (includes Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, Total Chol/HDL Ratio)
  • eGFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate)
  • ACR (Albumin Creatinine Ratio)
  • Microalbumin
  • HbA1c
  • FBG (Fasting Blood Glucose)
  • RBG (Random Blood Glucose)
  • INR
  • Creatinine Serum


For all pathology reports the same options to view the data as for the other reports are available:

Lipids
Pathology > Lipids displays your data as a breakdown of:

  • Cholesterol: <4.0, >4.0 and <=5.5, >5.5 and <=6.5, >6.5 and <=7.5, >7.5, No Cholesterol Recorded.


  • HDL: <1.0, >1.0 and <=2.0, >2.0, No HDL Recorded


  • LDL: <2.5, >2.5 and <=4.0, >4.0, No LDL Recorded


  • Triglycerides: <2.0, >2.0 and <=4.0, >4.0, No Triglycerides Recorded


  • Total Chol/HDL Ratio: <3.5, >3.5 and <5.0, >5.0, No Total Chol/HDL Ratio Recorded


The data is displayed as a pie chart.

eGFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate)
Pathology > eGFR displays your data in mg/ml as a breakdown of:

  • >= 90
  • >=60 to <90
  • >=45 to <60
  • >=30 to <45
  • >=15 to <30
  • <15
  • No Data


The eGFR value is obtained through pathology results or via calculation (see below). Where both are available the latest value is displayed in the graph.
The data is displayed as a pie chart.
Calculation method:
eGFR (ml/min) is calculated using the CKD-EPI formula from serum creatinine measurement (in µmol/L), age and gender. This formula is

where SCr is serum creatinine in mg/dL (convert from µmol/L to mg/dL by dividing by 88.4)
k is 0.7 for females and 0.9 for males
a is -0.329 for females and -0.411 for males
min indicates the minimum of SCr/k or 1, and max indicates the maximum of SCr/k or 1
The CKD-EPI formula is for age >= 18.
For children the Schwartz equation is used:
GFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) = (0.41 x Height) / (Serum creatinine / 88))
ACR (Microalbumin Creatinine Ratio)
Pathology > ACR displays your data as a breakdown of:

  • <2.5 Male
  • <3.5 Female
  • 2.5 – 25 Male
  • 3.5 – 35 Female
  • >25 Male
  • >35 Female
  • No Gender
  • No Data


ACR is either collected directly or is calculated as
ACR (mg/mmol) = microalbumin (mg/L) / urinary creatinine (mmol/L)
where microalbumin and urininary creatinine have the same date
The data is displayed as a pie chart.

Microalbumin
Pathology > MALB displays your data as a breakdown of:

  • <= 15 mg/L
    • 15 mg/L
  • No Data


The data is displayed as a pie chart.
HBA1c
Pathology > HBA1c displays your data as a breakdown of HBA1c status: <=7%, >7% and <=8%, >8% and <10%, >=10%, No HBA1c Recorded. The data is displayed as a pie chart.
NOTE: The reporting of HbA1c units changed in 2012/13. Refer to page 6 of the guidelines for Diabetes Management available at
{+}http://www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/en/For-Health-Professionals/Diabetes-National-Guidelines/+
The units will change to be reported in mmol/mol rather than %. The conversion from the old to the new units is as follows:
HbA1c (mmol/mol) = 20 + 11(A1c% - 4)
CAT will continue to report in % for the moment. Where results are received in mmol/mol a conversion will be done back to % using the formula above. Any result received with a value >=20 will be assumed to be in the new units and will be converted.
FBG and RBG
Fasting Blood Glucose displays your data as a breakdown of FBG status: <5.5%, 5.5 – 7.0, > 7.0%, No FBG
Recorded.
Random Blood Glucose displays your data as a breakdown of RBG status: <7.8%, 7.8 – 11.2, > 11.2%, No RBG Recorded.
The data is displayed as a pie chart.
INR
International Normalised Ratio - INR displays your data as a breakdown of INR status: <1.5, 1.5-2.0, 2.0-3.0, 3.0-4.0, >4.0,No INR Recorded. The data is displayed as a pie chart.
Creatinine Serum
Creatinine Serum status displays your data as a breakdown of the following measurements: <45, >= 45 and < 60, >=60 and <90, >90 and <= 110, > 110, No Creatinine Serum Recorded. The data is displayed as a pie chart
For all Pathology Reports, clicking on View Report will open a sub-set of the Benchmark Report to show data specific to the Pathology type.
Clicking on View Map will allow for pathology information to be mapped, functions are the same as described for View Map Function (Section 9).
