Synopsis of the Presentation:
Microscopy, including both cytology and hematology, is among one of the most common diagnostics in primary and specialty care veterinary hospitals. The veterinary technician can play a significant and important role in diagnostic microscopy, including sample collection, sample preparation and quality assurance, and sample analysis. This session will focus on techniques to maximize the diagnostic value of a sample and provide a hands-on, guided opportunity to acquire and practice microscopic sample analysis. Samples will include peripheral blood films and cytology preparations.
