Product Description

Ideal for identifying cells at the microscope, this atlas covers the basics of hematologic morphology, including examination of the peripheral blood smear, basic maturation of the blood cell lines, and discussions of a variety of clinical disorders. Over 400 photographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs illustrate hematology from normal cell maturation to the development of various pathologies.

  • Numerous illustrations include excellent schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographs.
  • Introductory chapters succinctly describe the peripheral blood smear, its preparation and examination, and hematopoiesis in general.
  • Coverage of cellular maturation includes schematics that illustrate the maturation of each cell line individually and highlight the cell in question.
  • Descriptions for each cell type include size, reference intervals, and nuclear and cytoplasmic characteristics.
  • Body Fluids chapter covers the other fluids found in the body besides blood, using images from cytocentrifuged specimens.
  • White blood cell differential table shows cells found in a normal white blood cell differential.
  • Overview of hematopoiesis includes a schematic drawing along with a detailed presentation of each cell, demonstrating the relationship between individual stages of hematopoiesis and the overall development scheme.
  • Morphologic abnormalities are presented in chapters on erythrocytes and leukocytes, along with a schematic description of each cell, to provide correlations to various disease states.
  • Coverage of common cytochemical stains, along with a summary chart for interpretation, aids in classifying malignant and benign leukoproliferative disorders.
  • Spiral binding and a compact size make this book easy to use in a laboratory setting.
  • NEW Normal Newborn Peripheral Blood Morphology chapter covers the normal cells found in neonatal blood.
  • More examples of specific cells and disorders allow you to compare abnormal cells to each other and to normal cells, differentiating those that are similar.
  • Expanded Evolve resources include case studies, study questions, links to related websites, and content updates.

Essential for Hematologists,Lab Professionals&Students Alike


This is the best color atlas I have seen. As a student, this has proven to be an invaluable tool in laboratory. I have recommended it to every other student in my laboratory. The photographs have amazing clarity and consistency. The text beginning each section and descriptive text following each photograph provides indispensable additional information for identification and understanding. It is very rare to see the backgrounds for each of the photographs a pristine white, so that the fine details can actually be distinguished. Each section is written with great care and with complete forethought. Even though this may not matter to many, but to me, the fact that is was spiral bound shows the amount of consideration to detail the author put into this atlas. There is nothing more frustrating then trying to keep a book open to the correct page, the ability for a book to be able to be lain flat on a table, and the having no problems with binding (e.g. broken binding resulting in loose pages). The comprehensive index helps you find a cell's information and/or photograph with just one quick glance. The amount of pages doesn't even begin to show the amount of knowledge that is encompassed in this book. You can believe this, as I go thru my student courses & when I begin my career as a clinical laboratory professional, this book with remain on my shelves as a ready-reference for any questions I may encounter along the way.

Beautifully illustrated and very well organized.


This atlas is a student's dream come true. It is very well organized and beautifully illustrated. With its very affordable price tag, every student interested in hematology should have the Carr/Rodak Atlas in their own library!

Very good


This is a really good atlas for a person who see cells at work. I like it, is small, easy to use and the pictures are very good.

Simple and to the point


Excellent book for beginners.It is simple and to the point without waffle.Beautiful pictures with good resolution. Improvements: expanded differential diagnoses and more pictures of the same features showing variations that we see in practice. Dr D.B.Tzitzivacos

triple C's(clear,costs low and cool)


I'm using the atlas now as a reference material in the hematology section and the details are well illustrated...I recommend it to Hematologists and Medical Technologists(in general).

A wonderful reference


This is not the atlas that we used in my Hematology classes, and I wish it was! I came across this one in the lab when I started my clinical education. It is a wonderful reference. Even the Hematology specialist at the hospital uses it as a quick reference for some of the pathology. It is extremely well organized, with clear pictures, and a good description of the morphology, defining characteristics and the pathology associated with each cell type. The first sections are also a good reference for development and differentiation of the various white blood cell lines, such as the differences between the promylocyte and mylocytes, a topic that students sometimes have difficulty which. In addition to the images of peripheral blood smears, there are micrographs, illustrations and bone marrow images. I highly recommend this as a reference for any clinical professionals library.

Great descriptions and pictures


I like this book for blood cell maturation pictures and descriptions. I really like the spriral binding for ease of use. The only complaint that I have is that it does not use all three origins for describing the cells, even if the infrequently used names were in parentheses, it would be better than eliminating them entirely, i.e. Proerythroblast (pronormoblast, rubriblast). I had to write all over the book including all of the naming conventions, so I thought they should have been included.

Nice Desktop Atlas


This atlas is a nice quick reference for the desktop. It is spiral bound and soft covered, so not the fanciest book on the shelf, but definitely worth a look. It has extremely good photos and diagrams of a wide range of haematalogical conditions, however the malaria section lets the book down - it is alright, but not up to the same standard as the rest of the book. All in all, a welcome addition to any haematology library.

Lab Pick


This is the lab atlas selected as "most preferred" by the hematology staff at my lab.

Hematology Necessity


This book was my best friend through hematology and advanced hematology. Exceptional pictures of all cells and their developmental stages, as well as many pictures of various abnormalities. I used it through two heme classes and to brush up before clinicals. My clinical site was very impressed with the atlas and purchased one to keep with their reference materials.
