The expanding spectrum of disciplines that exert an impact in advancing the frontiers of hematology are reflected in the 11 contributions to this volume. The exposition by LaCelle and Weed of the effect of erythrocytes on blood rheology is heavily grounded in physics and discusses hemorheology in the light of recent technological advances. The effect of internal erythrocyte viscosity and erythrocyte membrane deformability on whole-blood viscosity is emphasized, and some clinical insights into management of patients with abnormal hemorheology are included.
