About this course
Flow cytometry helps in diagnosis, lineage assignment, prognostication, and post-therapeutic monitoring of acute leukemia (AL). This e-learning module by Dr. Brent Wood elaborates on immunophenotypic changes that help identify abnormalities in maturation, a characteristic presentation of AL. Dr. Wood is currently Professor & Director of the Hematopathology Laboratory, Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles. He is well-known for his contribution to optimizing 9 and 10 color flow cytometry for identification of minimal residual disease in ALL and AML.
Upon completion of this module, you should be able to:
- Understand the role of flow cytometry in the diagnosis of AL
- Identify normal maturational patterns using flow cytometry
- Enumerate and differentiate subtypes of AL by identifying the underlying immunophenotypic abnormalities
- Diagnosis and classification of AL (blast enumeration and lineage assignment)
- Presentation of different subtypes of AL
- Differentiation between normal and neoplastic cell populations
- Identification of immunophenotypic abnormalities
