Optimizing Laboratory Testing for Hematologic
Disorders Series


Slide 1

September 2010

Welcome to Mayo Medical Laboratories' Hot Topics. These presentations provide short discussions of current topics and may be helpful to you in your practice.

Our speaker for this program is Dr. Curtis Hanson, from the Division of Hematopathology at Mayo Clinic. Dr. Hanson is presenting the first topic in our series "Optimizing Laboratory Testing for Hematologic Disorders." This series will address guidelines for appropriate laboratory test utilization in hematologic disorders and represents the combined effort of the Divisions of Hematopathology and Laboratory Genetics. This first presentation will address the leukocyte alkaline phosphatase stain (LAP), a traditional laboratory assay that no longer has value in clinical practice.
