Comprehensive survey of laboratory hematology, for both MLT and MLS students

Clinical Laboratory Hematology balances theory and practical applications in a way that is engaging and useful to medical laboratory technician and science (MLT/MLS) students, at all levels. Detailed technical information combined with a running, realistic case study provide ample opportunities to analyse and synthesise information, answer questions and solve problems, and consider real-world applications. Content of the 4th edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest advances in laboratory medicine and with updated content on iron metabolism and myelodysplastic syndromes.

Features & benefits
  • The text gives students a comprehensive base of knowledge in normal hematopoiesis and cell processes, offering crucial context for understanding the pathophysiology of hematologic/hemostatic diseases, evaluating and correlating lab test results, and ensuring the appropriate use of the laboratory in diagnosis and patient follow-up.
  • Chapter 12, Anemias of Disordered Regulation of Iron Metabolism and Heme Synthesis, has significantly updated content related to iron metabolism.
  • Chapter 25, Myelodysplastic Syndromes, has significantly updated content.
  • Appendices B and C have been extensively updated consistent with the WHO 2017 classification of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue and of hematopoietic, lymphopoietic, and histiocytic/dendritic neoplasms, respectively.
  • Objectives are divided into two levels: Level I (basic) and Level II (advanced). Each chapter is divided into modules, and each objective is identified with the module that addresses it.
  • Two levels of review questions at the end of each module and chapter are matched to both objective levels. Additional multiple-choice questions have been added for each objective level.
  • The Case Study is a running scenario referenced throughout the chapter. It provides a patient’s clinical and laboratory information that pertains to the chapter content.
  • Case Study questions and Checkpoints are included within each module and are appropriate for the information in that module or another previous module. Unlike other features, they’re not delineated by objective level.
  • Algorithms for critical pathways and reflex testing pathways are used when appropriate to help illustrate effective, cost-­efficient uses of laboratory tests in diagnosis or treatment planning.
  • Figures and tables are used liberally to help students organise and conceptualise information. Those figures and tables that previously appeared in online student resources have now been incorporated into the chapters.
  • Microphotographs are displayed liberally in the book and are typical of those found in a particular disease or disorder. New and updated microphotographs appear in the new edition.
  • The new edition includes an image atlas, a new, interactive library of nearly 1,200 images.
