Leukemia Cell Diagrams anywhere?
Hey thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm doing a project on leukemia. I'm very specific w/ photos and i was hoping to find a picture with white blood cells, red blood cells, & ABNORMAL white blood cells (leukemia cells) and platelets all together in a good image. If you have any or know where i can find any please send me the link. Thanks!
It is unlikely you will be able to find a single image file with the information you need, due to the extensive variability of leukemia. You may do better by first searching for "hematopoiesis" or "hematopoiesis diagram" images, then searching for the four major leukemic types (ALL, AML, CML, CLL). In Acute Myelogenous Leukemia alone, there are 8 subgroups (AML-M0 thru AML-M7). Some acceptable images may be found by searching for "Leukemia maturation diagram". Remember, in leukemia, the cells generally appear similar to one, some or all cells found during normal WBC maturation. While there may be some distinct characteristics of cells in a particular group (e.g. Auer Rods in AML myeloblasts), it is the quantity of a particular cell type at a particular maturation stage that separates the subgroups.
Leukemia — Comprehensive overview covers symptoms, causes, risk factors, treatment of this blood-related cancer.
