The Quick Guide to Hematology Testing is a speedy reference for anyone who orders, performs, or interprets hematology laboratory tests including complete blood counts, bone marrow biopsy and bone marrow film examinations, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular techniques. Clear understanding of the significance of hematology laboratory results is critical and awareness of the effect of confounding factors leads to clinically sound interpretations.

The Guide's pocket size provides immediate access at the time and location tests are ordered, performed, and interpreted. The text includes the most common anemias and leukemias, to emphasize their laboratory evaluation, treatment, and follow-up. Diseases and their assays are described together, so that all conditions may be correlated when a laboratory workup is warranted.

Although the Guide reviews clinical conditions, it should never be used as single source for differential diagnosis of patients; instead, many current references are provided for further reading. The authors' local experience suggests that the Guide is a useful resource for medical professionals. They hope you will find it valuable, too!
