The quantitation of platelets in peripheral blood is a well-recognized tool. Recently, new indices related to erythrocytes and platelet counts have been provided by hematologic analyzers. Concerning the platelet parameter, the three important parameters are plateletcrit (PCT), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW). The purpose of the study is to investigate these three parameters to define their expected values and the correlation with the parallel red blood cell… CONTINUE READING
