Hematology is the medical specialty devoted to diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases related to blood and its components, including blood cells, hemoglobin, blood proteins, and bone marrow. Conditions covered by hematology include blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma and blood-related disorders such as hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, and thrombosis (blood clots).
American Hospital Laboratory’s hematologists collaborate with hematopathologists, pathologists who specialize in diagnosing blood-related diseases. This interdisciplinary approach ensures accurate diagnoses and the most effective patient treatment plans.
Hematology, a medical subspecialty, often intersects with medical oncology, especially in treating blood cancers. Our laboratory offers a range of specialized hematology services, including but not limited to the following:
A technique used to separate and identify different types of hemoglobin, providing crucial data for diagnosing various types of anemia, notably sickle cell anemia.
Bone Marrow Biopsies:
A diagnostic procedure to examine bone marrow health, aiding in diagnosing blood disorders and certain types of cancer.
It evaluates clotting disorders, including assessing clotting factors, platelet function, and anticoagulant therapy efficacy.
