Bernadette F. Rodak, Jacqueline H. Carr
Saunders; 5th edition
Using Rodak’s Clinical Hematology Atlas, 5th Edition, you may make certain that you are correctly recognizing cells while seeing them under the microscope (PDF). This prestigious atlas provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of hematologic morphology, including an analysis of the peripheral blood smear, information on a variety of clinical disorders, and basic maturation of the blood cell lines. It is an excellent companion to Rodak’s Hematology: Clinical Principles & Applications. Nearly 500 photomicrographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs graphically illustrate hematology, beginning with normal cell maturation and progressing through the development of numerous diseases, so that you may be certain that the conclusions you draw in the laboratory are accurate.
- The typical cells that can be detected in neonatal blood are discussed in detail in the chapter on normal newborn peripheral blood morphology.
- The spiral binding, smaller trim size, and condensed textbook make it simple to make references to the atlas while working in the laboratory.
- The textbook has a chapter about the morphologic changes that occur after myeloid hematopoietic growth agents have been administered.
- NEW! A glossary of hematologic words is included at the back of the book, which serves as a handy reference for looking up definitions quickly.
- The cytocentrifuged specimens used in the chapter on body fluids are used to highlight the several types of fluids that are present in the body in addition to blood.
- Review questions and summary tables are included in the user resources available on the Evolve companion site. These features are included to further enhance the user’s learning experience.
- In the chapters devoted to erythrocytes and leukocytes, morphologic anomalies are discussed, along with a detailed description of each cell presented in a schematic format.
- Every chapter contains visual aids, such as schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographs, to help the reader have a better grasp on the hematologic cellular morphology being discussed.
- The chapters on leukemia provide descriptions of the most common cytochemical stains, as well as a summary table for interpreting the results of these stains. This information is included to assist in the classification of both malignant and benign leukoproliferative illnesses.
- NEW! The appendix with comparison tables of commonly confused cells comprises lymphocytes compared to neutrophilic myelocytes and monocytes compared to reactive lymphoctyes in order to assist users in seeing the minute differences between them.
