The new second edition of Color Atlas of Hematology serves as a useful reference guide and instructional textbook on peripheral blood. It offers a a real-world look at cell identificationâ€”the most important morphologic clues, key differentiating features, look-alikes, and associated disease states.
Color Atlas of Hematology lists the critical keys to successful morphologic identification of cells, ranging from the routine to the markedly abnormal. Detailed “A Closer Look At…” sections offer in-depth discussion, explanation, and highlights of clinical information, pathophysiology, and identification details on various topics. The cases presented include vital statistics, explanatory text, color illustrations, and photomicrographs. Links to whole slides viewed in DigitalScope are now included.
