BMA For Cytology

Bone Marrow is the spongy tissue present inside the Bones. It produces blood components such as white blood cells, Red blood cells, Platelets, and its precursors. Bone marrow aspiration (BMA) is the process of extracting the fluid from the Bone marrow tissues to examine the health condition of the bone marrow and examine the presence of white blood cells and red blood cells production in suspected pathology specimens. BMA Cytology gives cytological features of the Bone marrow cells to diagnose abnormal blood-related health issues pathologies.

Why BMA for Cytology Test?


Apart from other normal routine tests such as complete blood count when the results are abnormally low or high (RBC, WBC, and platelets), then further advanced studies for confirmation such as BMA for Cytology study provides information about numerical and cytological features of marrow cells, whereas in certain cases bone marrow trephine biopsies (BMB – Bone marrow biopsy is collected using the second needle from chest bone or pelvis) gives better appreciation between cells and overall bone marrow structure. This test helps to diagnose and monitor blood (anemia, leucopenia, leukocytosis, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytosis, pancytopenia, polycythemia, myelofibrosis or myelodysplastic syndrome, etc) and blood marrow diseases including some cancers (leukemia, lymphomas, multiple myeloma, etc), to determine stage or progression of a disease, iron levels (hemochromatosis – increased iron deposition in the blood leads to deposition in organs and tissues), etiologies of rare cases such as fevers of unknown origin, metastasis of certain cancers (secondary spread of cancer from the area of origin to bones), diseases (tuberculosis), storage diseases (amyloidosis, Gaucher’s), monitor prognosis, etc.
