Hematology and coagulation are two important areas of laboratory medicine that play vital roles in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.
Hematology is the study of blood and blood-forming tissues, and involves the analysis of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Hematology tests can be used to diagnose anemia, bleeding disorders, clotting disorders, and other conditions that affect the blood. Furthermore, they can be used to assess a condition's response to treatment.
After an injury, the body stops bleeding through coagulation, also known as hemostasis. Coagulation tests can be used to diagnose and monitor bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia and von Willebrand disease, as well as to assess the risk of abnormal bleeding or blood clots in people with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications.
In a modern diagnostic center, hematology and coagulation testing may be performed using a variety of techniques, including manual and automated cell counting, biochemical assays, and molecular diagnostic tests. These tests are typically ordered by healthcare providers, such as primary care physicians or specialists, to help diagnose and manage a wide range of medical conditions.
Typically, medical laboratory scientists or medical technologists provide hematology and coagulation services in modern diagnostic centers. These professionals work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as hematologists and clinicians, to provide accurate test results and support the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
