The interactive hematology app was developed by Shauna C. Anderson Young, PhD, and Keila B. Poulsen, BS, MLS(ASCP)CM, H, SH. The atlas is designed especially for medical laboratory technicians or medical laboratory science students. It is also a great tool for students in nursing, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant programs and as a study guide for medical students or residents.
The high-quality images provide a study guide for the following areas:
- Red blood cell maturation
- Red blood cell abnormalities
- White blood cell maturation
- White blood cell abnormalities
- Megakaryocyte maturation
- Megakaryocyte/Platelet abnormalities
- Cells of the reticuloendothelial system
There are three versions of the App: a free version containing only the Red Blood Cell slides, a (yet-to-be-released) paid version containing all the categories, and a free version for BYU students only that requires current enrollment in MMBio 392 or MMBio 394.
It is recommended that Anderson’s Atlas of Hematology (second edition) be used in combination with the app. After a basic knowledge of cell morphology has been accomplished, interactive quizzes can be developed to confirm mastery.
Funding for this application was provided by a grant from the College of Life Sciences at Brigham Young University. It was developed by the Life Sciences Web Team. Technical problems or other comments can be submitted through our feedback form or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
