Clinical Hematology Atlas 4/e
Authors:Carr J.H., Rodak B.F.
Publication date:May 2012
Ideal for identifying cells at the microscope, this atlas covers the basics of hematologic morphology, including examination of the peripheral blood smear, basic maturation of the blood cell lines, and discussions of a variety of clinical disorders. Over 400 photographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs illustrate hematology from normal cell maturation to the development of various pathologies.
Numerous illustrations include excellent schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographs.
Introductory chapters succinctly describe the peripheral blood smear, its preparation and examination, and hematopoiesis in general.
Coverage of cellular maturation includes schematics that illustrate the maturation of each cell line individually and highlight the cell in question.
Descriptions for each cell type include size, reference intervals, and nuclear and cytoplasmic characteristics.
Body Fluids chapter covers the other fluids found in the body besides blood, using images from cytocentrifuged specimens.
White blood cell differential table shows cells found in a normal white blood cell differential.
Overview of hematopoiesis includes a schematic drawing along with a detailed presentation of each cell, demonstrating the relationship between individual stages of hematopoiesis and the overall development scheme.
Morphologic abnormalities are presented in chapters on erythrocytes and leukocytes, along with a schematic description of each cell, to provide correlations to various disease states.
Coverage of common cytochemical stains, along with a summary chart for interpretation, aids in classifying malignant and benign leukoproliferative disorders.
Spiral binding and a compact size make this book easy to use in a laboratory setting.
Updated information on the subtypes of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) helps you recognize variant forms of CLL you may encounter in the lab.
