Haematology & Clinical Pathology

Haematology is a branch of Medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the blood and bone marrow as well as of the immunologic, haemostatic (blood clotting) and vascular systems. Because of the nature of blood, the science of hematology profoundly affects the understanding of many diseases and changes that are seen in the blood of a patient, providing clues to the diagnosis and treatment of various clinical conditions(adapted from http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=22594).
