The standardization committee of the Korean Society for Laboratory Hematology sought to establish standardized testing guidelines for the diagnosis of hematologic malignancies. The guidelines were developed on the basis of survey results and international guidelines, including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines and European LeukemiaNet recommendations. The committee expects that the diagnostic guidelines presented here will enhance diagnostic test standardization and clinical decision making and that the novel developments due to new molecular technologies will be integrated into the diagnostic algorithms through ongoing consensus initiatives.
