Hematology Pathology

Hematology is the study of blood and blood-forming organs. Hematopathology is a sub-category of pathology which focuses on blood diseases and disorders. Physicians specializing in hematology are known as hematologists, and the pathologists who interpret the lab work related to hematology are known as hematopathologists.

 

Studies of the blood are done either through examination of peripheral blood or bone marrow. Peripheral blood is the blood circulating throughout the body, while bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside bones which produces red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. By utilizing samples of peripheral blood or bone marrow, studies in hematology can provide insight into diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplatic syndromes, myeloproliferative disorders, and other blood disorders.
