Book Description

5 April 2013 0470671203 978-0470671207
This book acts as a clinical manual for the diagnostician who cannot turn to reference books when the morphology or immunophenotype are atypical. This volume presents a logical practical approach to the diagnosis of blood disorders, both neoplastic and reactive, and other diagnostic applications of flow cytometry in non–neoplastic haematology diagnosis. Illustrations are provided throughout with worked examples.

Product Description


“There is no doubt that this book will find its way firmly onto the bookshelf in every laboratory, and into the work bags of many trainees.”  ( Haem Trainee , 1 January 2014) “This is a concise and very practical guide to the use of flow cytometry in hematological and hematopathological diagnosis. While not as detailed in immunophenotyping intricacies as other books of its kind, it shines with its practical approach and expert guidance applied to current clinical practice.”  ( Doody’s , 19 July 2013)

From the Back Cover

Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology DiagnosisDr Mike Leach, Dr Mark Drummond and Dr Allyson DoigDepartment of Haematology, Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow, UKHaematology Department, Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, Glasgow, UKDepartment of Haematology, Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow, UKThe accurate diagnosis of haematologic malignancies is a complex and challenging task. It routinely involves morphologic, molecular, cytogenetic and flow cytometric expertise. To determine what treatment protocol will be followed, it is vital to integrate, interpret and report these results accurately. Flow cytometry is key in this diagnostic pathway. This book guides the reader as to how flow cytometry results should be interpreted and applied to optimize patient care. At the core of this text is an appreciation of clinical, morphological and immunophenotypic correlation and the importance of constant liaison and discussion between the medical and scientific teams. The authors present a logical and practical approach to the diagnosis of blood disorders (both neoplastic and reactive) and evaluate the diagnostic applications of flow cytometry. Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology Diagnosis provides: A clinical reference source on all aspects of flow cytometry, covering both malignant and benign conditions Carefully chosen real–life cases in each chapter, complemented by high quality morphological images Help in making a diagnosis, together with an understanding of the limitations of the technique and the potential pitfallsAll those who instigate, perform, interpret or act upon flow cytometry patient material will find this book an invaluable guide.

Great book for trainee and Consultant Haematologists . Everything you need to know about diagnosing haematological malignancies using flow cytometry, in a clear, concise format, with high quality images. Interesting and useful examples in each chapter. Clinical, morphological and cytogenetic features of diseases are given alongside their immunophenotypic profile, which really helps in practical diagnosis. Highly recommended!

Excellent book. Practical, useful. Clear explanations with very helpful illustrations. A must for those working in a flow cytometry lab, trainee haematologists and Consultant haemato-oncologists interested in expanding their knowledge and understanding of flow cytometry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Flow 1 Sep 2013
By Roisin
As a trainee in Haematology with an interest in diagnostics this book has proven useful, not only as a reference guide for a higher degree in Haematopathology, but also in terms of aiding day to day practice in the laboratory. This is the first of its kind to provide a reproducible, logical, step-by-step guide to the interpretation of flow cytometry patterns seen not only in malignant haematological disorders but also benign reactive conditions. The art of interpreting immunophnenotyping data is clearly exemplified through a number of real-life case scenarios. The reader is provided with excellent clinical and radiological images, representative morphology and illustrative flow plots with relevant cytogenetic data. This book is easily read and I can highly recommend it to all those with an interest in Haematopathology. In particular trainees in both haematology and pathology will find it invaluable; A common complaint of haematology trainees is not enough time or teaching in the laboratory. This is evidenced by our poor performance in the laboratory element of the exam. The demands of clinical work will continue to prevail but this book definitely provides a bridge to that knowledge gap, and is an essential buy when preparing for the FRCPath exam. More texts such as this based on clinical scenarios would be greatly welcomed!

This book is just ok. Bought it as a pathology resident but it is not very down to the basics and not very organized either. Not too helpful.
