Recent studies of leukemia have involved many new techniques, some of which are listed on this slide. Patients' clinical presentations and the appearance of Romanowsky's stained peripheral blood and bone marrow preparations have been the traditional methods used to classify the various types of leukemia and still are often the only methods available. The other methods listed in Table 1, are becoming more readily available in many medical centers, however, and students of leukemia should be aware of them. A few slides in this program will show how "special" stains and immunologic markers can be used to help diagnose ALL. The other four methods will not be illustrated further, but references included with this program will provide background information about them.
