6K at Addenbrooke's (VI): Blood Cancer Detectives

We Are Ridgefield 2018: 6K Investigates Careers in the NHS - Addenbrooke's Visit

 

We went lymphocyte (white blood cells) counting, with the aim of identifying how many there were of each of five different types. With this information, we could decide whether or not the patient might have leukemia (cancer of the blood cells).
