The study of blood, blood-forming organs including bone marrow, and blood-related disorders and diseases is the subject of the medical specialty known as hematology. The Greek term for blood is where the word “heme” originates. Hematological examinations are used to identify and classify illnesses such hemophilia, anemia, leukemia, sickle-cell anemia, lymphomas, and other infections.
Testing for Hematology
For the diagnosis of hematological and non-hematological diseases and disorders, blood tests offer useful information. One of the most popular blood tests used to diagnose diseases is the complete blood count (CBC). The number of white and red blood cells, platelet count, hematocrit red blood cell volume, hemoglobin concentration, differential white blood count, and several additional red blood cell indices are among the hematological parameters assessed in a complete blood count (CBC). Complete blood counts are used to diagnose inflammatory illnesses, blood-related malignancies, anemia, and infections.
