Nothing is more confusing than trying to read and understand your own medical labs and bone marrow biospy reports. Often they can be complicated combinations of numbers and results. Clear the confusion by hearing from AML expert, Dr. Margaret Kasner, who will walk you through your AML labs and clarify what common results mean and to which numbers you should be paying the most attention to. Come with your questions!
