About this book

Introduction

Although instrumentation and laboratory techniques for flow cytometry (FCM) immunophenotyping of hematologic malignancies are well documented, there is relatively little information on how best to perform data analysis, a critical step in FCM testing. In Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology: A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation, three physicians highly experienced in laboratory hematopathology and FCM offer a unique systematic approach to FCM data analysis and interpretation based on the visual inspection of dual parameter FCM graphics. This step-by-step approach to optimal FCM data analysis is demonstrated by means of numerous FCM graphics derived from actual well-documented clinical cases. The authors include notes on "tricks of the trade" and pitfalls to avoid. The discussion, covering leukemias, lymphomas, and other conditions, moves from simple to complex specimens, with an emphasis on visual pattern analysis. The companion CD-ROM with 80 detailed case studies provides additional opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of FCM data analysis.
Richly illustrated and highly instructive, Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology: A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation offers clinical pathologists, hematopathologists, and specialists in laboratory medicine a much-needed guide with a practical and logical approach for sharpening of their FCM data analysis skills on a wide spectrum of hematologic disorders.
