Hematopathology Tests (Flow Cytometry, Cytogenetics/FISH, Molecular Pathology)
Stanford Hematopathology consultants are committed to providing the highest quality of care and delivering timely diagnoses for your cases. Members of our staff have participated in setting worldwide standards for hematopathology diagnoses, and have extensive clinical experience in reviewing challenging hematopathology cases.
A Stanford consult will review all submitted material, generate
a differential diagnosis, and order testing appropriate for that case. This eliminates
unnecessary laboratory testing and tailors testing appropriate for your patient’s
diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Clinician orders laboratory testing to be performed on submitted specimens.
- Comprehensive testing performed by our consultant pathologists with appropriate laboratory testing based on a differential diagnosis.
- Specimens with scant cellularity will receive a targeted evaluation with fewer markers, optimized to address the primary clinical concern.
- If flow cytometry is not likely to be useful based on the evaluation by our pathologist, the client is contacted and given the opportunity to cancel the study.
- Our reports include recommendations for further evaluation if indicated.
- Our consultant pathologists are available to discuss preliminary results for all cases.
- Clinician called with critical results.
- Final report will be faxed to you with a diagnosis based on morphologic and immunophenotypic findings.
- Integrated hematopathology reports issued incorporating histology, flow cytometry, molecular genetic, and cytogenetic results into one comprehensive report.
- Significance of all findings is reviewed, and any changes to the diagnosis based on these new findings will also be noted.
