THE DEVELOPMENT OF GUIDELINES AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PERIPHERAL BLOOD FILM REVIEW INTERNATIONALLY
Speaker: Anna Merino (SP)
|ABSTRACT||With the advance of the technology of hematology analyzers, the indications for peripheral blood film (PBF) review by an expert have declined, but still remain essential. PBF review contributes to the following: 1) Complements/validates the findings of automated hematology analyzers, 2) Provides information on hematologic abnormalities that cannot be assessed by the current hematology analyzers, 3) Abnormal red cell morphology detection, 4) Identification of blasts, lymphoma or other abnormal cells, 4) Platelet clumping or abnormal platelet morphology inspection and 5) Dyshematopoiesis detection. Some examples are provided in the presentation. It also discusses on some issues related to who performs the PBF review. Read more.|
