Since its introduction, this outstanding atlas from the CAP Hematology and Clinical Microscopy Resource Committee has proven its value to laboratories around the world. Representing nine years of hematology survey data, the 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.
