The process for the detection of monoclonal gammopathies (MGs) is highly complex. To obtain an accurate diagnosis, diagnostic data must be compiled from several areas of the laboratory (eg, total protein, immunoglobulin levels, gel or capillary electrophoreses patterns).
“Laboratory Detection and Initial Diagnosis of Monoclonal Gammopathies,” establishes recommendations that pathologists and clinicians can implement to better manage testing and improve the accurate diagnoses of patients with MGs.
