Hematology laboratory tests
Why is laboratory testing important?
Laboratory tests can help identify or, where appropriate, rule out the underlying diseases.
However, it is important to highlight that the result of a laboratory test does not in itself constitute a diagnosis, only the results are included in the finding. You will receive the diagnosis, therapy or treatment recommendation from your specialist or treating physician who ordered the laboratory tests.
Contact your doctor with all laboratory test results.
Hematology deals with the diseases of the hematopoietic and lymphatic organs, including hemostasis, which deals with disorders of blood clotting. The most common hematological laboratory tests examine the quantitative and qualitative changes in white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
