The prevalence of thrombotic disease presents clinicians with a considerable challenge. To identify the underlying cause of thrombosis and ensure that a patient receives the proper treatment, a broad range of reliable diagnostic methods may be required.
We invite you to join us for a new webinar with Dr. John Mitsios, PhD, as he discusses the best practices for assessing the clinical conditions of thrombophilia, and how and when to test for optimal patient management.
During this presentation he will:
- Define thrombophilia
- Describe the most common laboratory tests used for thrombophilia assessment
- Determine when to order a thrombophilia workup on a patient
- Contrast different approaches to diagnosing thrombophilia
Dr. Mitsios graduated from the University of Ioannina, Greece with a PhD in Chemistry. Upon completion of his doctoral thesis, he then went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Mitsios then transitioned to the world of Clinical Chemistry and completed a fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. His primary research interest throughout his education and training has been in coagulation, with an emphasis on platelet function and biology. Dr. Mitsios joined Siemens-Healthineers as a clinical consultant as part of the Scientific and Clinical Affairs team. In addition, Dr. Mitsios has co-authored 20 peer-reviewed articles and 3 book chapters.
