Presentation by Dr. Elena Gorman DVM, MS, DACVP Beyond the Numbers – Cytologic Evaluation of Blood Smears and use of Flow Cytometry Data – Helpful or Painful?
“Recent advances in the field of bench top/point-of-care hematology analyzers have greatly improved both acquisition and analysis of peripheral blood in animals. However, limitations still exist in the ability of automated analyzers to appropriately identify many cell types and for clinicians to understand and apply assay data. Furthermore, no analytic analyzer is capable of detecting and identifying hemoparasites, nucleated erythrocytes or morphologic changes. Therefore, this review will revisit the importance of visual examination of well-prepared blood smears in addition to the complete blood count (CBC). Additionally, interpretation of flow cytograms, which are now commonplace for many point-of-care analyzers, will briefly be described.”
