Hematological Parameter

Abstract

A new hematological parameter, namely mean hemoglobin density in one liter of blood (MDHL), is based on the new index of mean cell density of hemoglobin, MCHD, or more particularly, MDHL is provided as an advantageous screening parameter to distinguish between Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) and Thalassemia Trait TT. The MDHL parameter showed superior sensitivity, specificity, predictive value and efficacy of as high as 100%. The new screening test also entails significantly lower costs involving the evaluation of patients with hypochromic microcytosis.
