This request will be processed as a consultation case. An interpretation, which includes an evaluation of the specimen and determination of a diagnosis, will be provided by staff hematopathologists within a formal pathology report to the referring pathologist.
-This test should be ordered when submitting any wet tissue or liquid specimen along with a request for a Hematopathology consultation
-This test should be used when all processing of a formalin-fixed biopsy core is to be performed by Mayo Clinic.
-This test can be used when requesting that a Mayo Hematopathologist provides full bone marrow workup, including appropriate ancillary testing, interpretation, and reporting. This could include processing of the formalin-fixed biopsy as above or use of a paraffin-embedded bone marrow biopsy block, as long as a wet tissue or liquid specimen is also submitted.
-Appropriate additional stains and other ancillary testing may be performed in order to render an accurate diagnosis. The additional stains and tests ordered will have the results included within the final pathology report and will be charged separately.
-If requesting a peripheral blood smear evaluation only, order SPSM / Morphology Evaluation (Special Smear).
-If requesting a Hematopathology consultation on paraffin-embedded tissue and slides only, order 70012 / Pathology Consultation.
-If requesting stand-alone specific testing, please refer to the MML catalog for order codes.
-Flow cytometry on blood or bone marrow order LCMS / Leukemia/Lymphoma Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry
-Flow cytometry for tissue order LLPT / Leukemia/Lymphoma Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry, Tissue
-Chromosome analysis, order CHRBM / Chromosome Analysis, Hematologic Disorders, Bone Marrow
Note: Testing requested by the referring physician (immunostains, molecular studies, etc) may not be performed if deemed unnecessary by the reviewing Mayo Hematopathologist. For all pathology consultations, ancillary testing necessary to determine a diagnosis is ordered at the discretion of the Mayo pathologist.
