CSF evaluation - Cytology and Infectious Disease Diagnostics

Evaluation of CSF is an important diagnostic tool for assessment of patients displaying neurological abnormalities. Basic cytological evaluation of CSF includes determination of the total and differential leukocyte counts and protein concentration. In addition, other cytological abnormalities including atypical or neoplastic cells, infectious agents or evidence of haemorrhage may be identified. Pre-analytic variables, clinical signs and species variations must be taken into consideration when interpreting cytological findings. Characterising the type of inflammatory response can help to clarify the underlying pathological processes. Identification of infectious agents can be achieved using a number of methodologies and is a vital component of accurate diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease.

This webinar is sponsored by ASAP Laboratory
