PURPOSE OF REVIEW Measurements of red cell volume, hemoglobin (Hb) concentration and Hb content continue to play a crucial role in the differential diagnosis of anemias 80 years after the publication of Wintrobe's seminal work. Modern hematology analyzers provide additional data on the heterogeneity of these parameters (distribution width) and quantify similar parameters of reticulocytes as well. Red cell and reticulocyte cellular indices are widely used in the diagnosis and monitoring of… CONTINUE READING
