Clinical Flow Cytometry for the Perplexed-Part 3: Lymphomas


This lecture covers B and T cell lymphomas, their phenotypes and properties, and differential diagnoses of key phenotypes. This lecture is not only useful for those entering clinical practice in hematopathology but serves as a useful review for those taking AP/CP boards.

Dr. David P. Ng is a medical director of hematopathology at ARUP Laboratories and an assistant clinical professor of pathology at the University of Utah. Dr. Ng received his medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine. He then completed an anatomic and clinical pathology residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and a hematopathology fellowship at the University of Washington. Dr. Ng is board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology and hematology. He is the recipient of the Janis Giorgi Young Investigator award and the John H. Rippey Grant for Laboratory Quality Assurance. His research interests include minimal residual disease testing, clinical flow cytometry, and deep learning applications in flow cytometry.


After this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Define the major diagnostic flow cytometric division in B cell lymphomas
  • Recall the phenotype of abnormal plasma cells
  • Recognize the maturational pathway of immature B and T cells
