You will uncover the key secrets to making your cytology evaluations both fun and rewarding. This course will present key information on what cells from different body regions look like when they are healthy, and when they are diseased, infected or neoplastic – key things in helping you make a diagnosis based on cytology. We’ll also look at blood smear evaluation as well to round things off!

There’s loads to love about this course, with lots of live tutor interaction, comprehensive course materials, loads of images, and a special course assessment task too!

This tutorial will cover what cells from all over the body look like in both health and disease. What’s more, we’ll help you - the veterinary nurse or technician - decipher when a tissue is normal, or whether it may have hypertrophy, inflammation or neoplasia - all of which can help you and your vets make timely decisions for your patient management!

This tutorial is all about the cells we find in blood - the red cells and white cells, as well as platelets. We’ll use cytology to learn more about causes of anaemia, to identify red blood cell parasites, to help diagnose leukaemia, among other conditions, and to help differential clotting disorders involving platelets as well!

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, the participant will have a sound understanding of:

  • The preparation of blood smears, cytology samples and microscope set-up that will help optimise cytological diagnosis
  • The key cytological differences between inflammation, hyperplasia and neoplasia in a wide range of cell samples, including skin and subcutaneous, osseous and soft tissue organ cytology samples
  • The key cytological characteristics of regenerative and non-regenerative anaemia, red blood cell parasites, leukaemia, thrombocytopaenia and the causes of these abnormalities
