10/14/2015
12:00 PM to 1:00PM (Americas) Central Time (US & Canada)

Ronald W. Thomason, MD, Medical Director, Co-director of Hematopathology, Integrated Oncology/Dianon, Esoterix Pathology Practice Group, LabCorp Specialty Testing Group, Brentwood, TN

In most circumstances, correlation with clinical parameters or results of other clinical tests will define the etiology for CBC abnormalities. This session will describe extended laboratory testing used to evaluate and differentiate blood cancers including immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and FISH. Case studies will be used to demonstrate the correlation of CBC results with other extended testing results in the evaluation and differential diagnosis of leukemias and lymphomas.

Objectives:

  • Define hematopathology and neoplastic hematopathology.
  • Discuss the various techniques and extended lab tests used in hematopathology.
  • Describe how abnormal CBC results correlate with other extended lab tests to evaluate and diagnose blood cancers.
