Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Elsevier Australia (http://www.elsevierhealth.com.au) has published a new local textbook from esteemed Sydney Senior Medical Scientist and author of 'Microscopic Haematology', Gillian Rozenberg.
As well as being an indispensible tool for practicing clinicians, the new 'Cases in Microscopic Haematology' is a must-have for the haematologists, pathologists and medical scientists of tomorrow.
This high-quality haematology textbook comprises a collection of 80 microscopic haematology case studies specifically designed to engage readers in the laboratory process of data and blood film analysis, differential diagnosis and reporting.
A key feature of the 'Cases in Microscopic Haematology' is its inclusion of rare blood film/slides – including paediatric slides – that are not easily available elsewhere.
Rozenberg has included the family history, analyser data and blood film/slide for each of the 80 cases contained in the book. Students are able to work through the cases using a template to complete the differential diagnosis and reporting. Both the process and template simulate a functioning laboratory environment.
Case studies are organised according to difficulty and – most importantly for some – the worked cases are available in the back of the textbook.
Rozenberg’s previous book, 'Microscopic Haematology: A Practical Guide for the Laboratory', is now in its third edition. Microscopic Haematology is an excellent companion title for 'Cases in Microscopic Haematology', whether purchased separately or as a package.
Elsevier’s Evolve platform features a range of resources for instructors. This includes all the book’s images in an easy-to-use image collection and 20 annotated virtual slides comprising case studies from 'Cases in Microscopic Haematology'.
