Hematology Case Studies with Blood Cell Morphology and Pathophysiology compiles specialized case studies with specific information on various hematological disorders with Full Blood Examination (FBE or CBC), blood film images and pathophysiology of each condition. In addition, it provides basic information on how to recognize and diagnose hematological conditions that are frequently observed in the laboratory. Technicians and scientists working in core laboratories such as biochemistry labs or blood banks will find this book to be extremely thorough. Moreover, it can be used as a reference book by technicians, scientists and hematologists in every level of expertise in diagnosing hematological disorders.
- Includes morphology of red cells, white cells and platelets
- Provides images of actual blood slides under the microscope, showing the most important diagnostic features observed in each condition
- Presents details that are considered difficult for beginners or non- hematologists, such as specific tests and techniques
- Covers case studies that finish with the pathophysiology of the condition
