Clinical Utility of Immature Platelet Parameters
12:00 PM to 1:00PM (Americas) Central Time (US & Canada)
Frances Rosario-Quinones, MD Pathologist, Spectrum Health, Grand Rapids, MI
Advances in hematology testing offer parameters useful in assessing challenging conditions such as thrombocytopenia. This presentation provides an overview of immature platelet parameters (IPF% and IPF#) and discusses their clinical utility. Case studies will be presented to highlight the value of these parameters in assessing bone marrow activity and effective thrombopoiesis.
Discuss the immature platelet parameters (IPF% and IPF#) and review their clinical utility.
Explain the role of immature platelet parameters in the evaluation of thrombocytopenia.
Outline the value of immature platelet parameters through specific case study examples.
