A hematologist may sometimes function as the lead physician (especially those who specialize in pediatric leukemia) or work as part of a team that can include, among other things, a radiologist, surgeon, radiation-oncologist, geneticist, and rheumatologist (a specialist in autoimmune diseases).
In addition to blood tests, a hematologist may perform other procedures:
Bone marrow aspiration is the extraction of the liquid part of the bone marrow to diagnose leukemia or lymphoma.
Bone marrow biopsy is the extraction of the solid core of bone marrow to aid in the diagnosis of leukemia and other cancers.
Hemoglobin electrophoresis is a blood test used to confirm sickle cell disease or other inherited disorders affecting red blood cells.
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) testing is a blood test used to determine if a bone marrow donor is a good match for a patient.
