1) The 10-part CBC consisted of white blood cell count (WBC), red blood cell count (RBC), hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), red cell distribution width (RDW), platelet count, and mean platelet volume (MPV).
Another recent addition to hematology instrumentation is the graphic display of red cells and platelet volume histograms with related indices such as the red cell distribution width, the red cell morphology index, and the mean platelet volume.
Although platelet parameters, including the mean platelet volume (MPV) and the platelet distribution width (PDW), have been routinely available to clinicians for some time, their role in the diagnosis and management of patients remains unclear.
