ABC of CBC is a keen attempt on interpretation and clinical correlation of various traditional and novel parameters in a complete blood count report.
Enriched with all relevant text and graphic information and its interpretation.
Encompassing various less understood and ignored parameters, such as Large undefined cells (LUC), Mean platelet volume (MPV), Immature platelet fraction (IPF), Red cell distribution width (RDW), histograms and cytograms.
There is a lot of hidden information generated by newer and sophisticated cell counters, which these parameters reveal, because ‘‘Eyes can only see what the mind knows!’’
It still remains the first ever published elaborated document on the subject of CBC, with profound information on many useful parameters for diagnostic skills.
Proper interpretation of CBC is of great utility in narrowing the differential diagnosis, also aid in avoiding expensive and invasive battery of tests like bone marrow aspiration and biopsy.
