Ensure you are accurately identifying cells at the microscope with Clinical Hematology Atlas, 5th Edition. An excellent companion to Rodak's Hematology: Clinical Principles & Applications, this award-winning atlas offers complete coverage of the basics of hematologic morphology, including examination of the peripheral blood smear, basic maturation of the blood cell lines, and information on a variety of clinical disorders. Nearly 500 photomicrographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs vividly illustrate hematology from normal cell maturation to the development of various pathologies so you can be sure you’re making accurate conclusions in the lab. Schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographs are found in every chapter to visually enhance understanding of hematologic cellular morphology. Smaller trim size, concise text, and spiral binding make it easy to reference the atlas in the laboratory. Chapter on normal newborn peripheral blood morphology covers the normal cells found in neonatal blood. Chapter on body fluids illustrates the other fluids found in the body besides blood, using images from cytocentrifuged specimens. The most common cytochemical stains, along with a summary chart for interpretation, are featured in the leukemia chapters to help classify both malignant and benign leukoproliferative disorders. Chapter featuring morphologic changes after myeloid hematopoietic growth factors is included in the text. Morphologic abnormalities are covered in the chapters on erythrocytes and leukocytes, along with a description of each cell, in a schematic fashion. User resources on the Evolve companion site feature review questions and summary tables to further enhance their learning experience. NEW! Appendix with comparison tables of commonly confused cells includes lymphocytes versus neutrophilic myelocytes and monocytes versus reactive lymphoctyes to help users see the subtle differences between them. NEW! Glossary of hematologic terms at the end of the book provides a quick reference to easily look up definitions.

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is pleased to introduce the second edition of Anderson's Atlas of Hematology, the most comprehensive atlas for the laboratory technologist. Understanding that effectiveness as a technician comes through the ability to identify what one sees under the microscope, this atlas equips students with visual examples of the concepts covered in their programs. This new ediion has been thoroughly updated and revised based on the latest basic science and clinical findings. In addition, you’ll find new, higher-quality images as well as the most recent World Health Organization classification of hematologic disorders. With its four-color illustrations and clear descriptions, this atlas enables you to describe and identify all stages in the development of blood cells. Moreover, it provides an illustrated guide to a broad range of hematologic disorders. Used as a quick reference, study guide, or atlas, this is an invaluable tool for today's laboratory technician student, helping them clearly identify the very types of hematologic images they will encounter in practice.
As the definitive diagnostic atlas of the diseases of the hematopoietic system, the Atlas of Hematopathology appeals to a wide range of people who are being trained in a variety of medical fields or practicing as non-hematopathologists, and therefore, are looking for a book which can provide information in a clear, focused format, with no excessive text or details. The atlas offers effective guidance in evaluating specimens from the lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, and peripheral blood, enabling clinicians to deliver more accurate and actionable pathology reports. Practicing physicians and those in pathology and hematology training also gain a better understanding of the nature of hematologic disorders and improve their diagnostic skills along the way. Taking a unique multi-disciplinary approach, the book covers conventional histopathology and cytopathology, as well as all important complementary diagnostic tests, such as immunophenotyping (immunohistochemical stains and flow cytometry), karyotyping, FISH and DNA/molecular studies. It offers concise textual and extensive visual coverage of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematology disorders, with the neoplastic hematology sections presented according to the most recent WHO classifications. There is also an introduction to the normal structures of hematopoietic tissues and the various multidisciplinary techniques. The atlas contains more than 900 high-quality color images that mirror the findings that fellows and clinicians encounter in practice. It provides information in a quick, simple and user-friendly manner, attracting those who are in training or are not considered experts in the field. Residents, fellows, practicing clinicians, and researchers in pathology, hematology, hematology/oncology, as well as graduate students in pathology and other clinicians workings in clinical hematology laboratories will all find it useful. Saves clinicians and researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on the diverse clinical and scientific aspects of hematopathology, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles For clinicians, fellows, and residents, correct diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of diseases depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease – hematologists, pathologists, oncologists, and other clinicians will benefit from this clear, focused, annotated format Companion web site features over 900 images from the book!
