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.

Objectives:

  • 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.
