The main activity of the Hematopathology Section, created in 1997, centers on diagnosing hematological malignancies from a comprehensive, multidisciplinary perspective. The diagnoses are based on the WHO’s 2008 revised classification of these diseases, in which several members of the Section have actively participated.
The Section is a pioneer in the diagnosis of hematologic malignancies, integrating the results of the analyses performed in a single diagnostic report. In addition, biological follow-up is carried out on treated disease by comprehensive studies to detect minimal residual disease.
The Section has a highly qualified medical and technical staff with broad experience in executing and interpreting the tests used. It is comprised of hematologists and pathologists, specialists in human genetics and molecular biology, nurses specialized in clinical analysis, and laboratory technicians.
