Hematology is a specialized field focusing on the study of blood and blood disorders. Hematologists and hematopathologists are highly trained healthcare professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases related to blood and its components, including blood cells and bone marrow.

Hematological tests play a crucial role in diagnosing various conditions such as anemia, infection, hemophilia, blood-clotting disorders, and leukemia. These tests provide valuable information about the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of blood, aiding in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

There are four major areas of study within Hematology:

  1. Hemoglobinopathy: This involves the study of abnormalities in the globin chains of hemoglobin molecules. Conditions such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia fall under this category.

  2. Hematologic Malignancies: This area focuses on the study of cancers affecting the blood and bone marrow, including leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.

  3. Anemia: Anemia is characterized by a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood. Hematologists specialize in diagnosing and treating various types of anemia.

  4. Coagulopathy: Coagulopathy refers to disorders of blood coagulation, which can lead to abnormal bleeding or clotting. Hematologists are trained to diagnose and manage these conditions effectively.
