USCAP Presents:
Liver Pathology: Translating a World of Colors into Clinically Relevant Pathology Reports

The microscopic pattern of liver biopsies for non-neoplastic diseases has changed with increasing emphasis on steatohepatitis, fibrosis regression and drug-induced liver disease. The reasons for these changes (based on consultative cases at several large medical centers) include classification of an hepatic pattern of injury, primary biliary cholangitis, fatty liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, etiology of cirrhosis and transplant pathology (unpublished data). Among the neoplastic cases, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma/metastatic adenocarcinoma and hepatocellular adenoma are the leading areas that cause problems in diagnosis for practicing pathologists. Advances in radiologic techniques facilitate targeting smaller lesions, necessitating judicious use of immunohistochemistry.

In the last few years, characteristic molecular changes have been described in a variety of liver tumors and are increasingly being used for diagnosis. Take advantage of this fantastic mentoring opportunity to study liver interactively with experts who can improve your performance and enhance your practice.

You should consider taking this course in contiguity with Twists and Turns of Problematic GI Pathology and How to Find Your Way Out!, directed by Dr. Gregory Y. Lauwers, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center/University of South Florida, January 27-30, 2019.

USCAP Presents:
Head and Neck Cytopathology: Practical Tools for Common Cases

Early diagnosis of a myriad of benign and malignant diseases (presenting as swellings) affecting the head and neck provides the best chance for successful treatment. Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) is an expedient and cost-effective method to sample these masses and is the primary biopsy method for thyroid and salivary glands and a useful approach to evaluate lymph nodes. The majority of practicing pathologists have not completed formal fellowship training in cytopathology and do not have a diagnostic paradigm for these relatively common specimen types. This course is intended to help close the gap by building a strong foundation in head and neck cytopathology and familiarizing attendees with the common diagnostic challenges encountered when evaluating FNA specimens from the thyroid, salivary glands and lymph nodes. The outcome should be an increase in the number of definitive diagnoses, reduction in equivocal diagnoses, and mitigation of repeat FNA or subsequent invasive procedures. The target audience is general pathologists with an interest in cytopathology, pathology residents and fellows, surgical pathology fellows and cytopathology fellows.

Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
Course Directors: Elham Khanafshar, M.D., MS and Britt-Marie E. Ljung, M.D.

USCAP Presents:
Diagnostic Challenges in Hematopathology

Hematopoietic neoplasms are highly heterogeneous, composed of numerous clinicopathologic subtypes and variants, and may present at many organ sites. The diagnostic evaluation of lymphomas and hematopoietic neoplasms presenting at nodal and extra-nodal sites requires careful integration of histologic, immunophenotypic, clinical and molecular features. Furthermore, rapid advances in the genetic/genomic understanding of these diseases pose a significant challenge to staying abreast of the diagnostic criteria, immunophenotypic and molecular prognostic/therapeutic markers that have clinical impact. This is underscored by diminishing sample sizes in biopsies of extra-nodal lesions and needle core biopsies of lymph nodes. In addition, the role of the pathologist as integrators of information is expanding rapidly.

This educational activity will highlight practical aspects representing important changes that impact the diagnostic approach to challenging extra-nodal hematopoietic neoplasms, cutaneous lymphomas, T-cell lymphomas and needle core biopsies from lymph nodes. Experience one-on-one learning from experts who will share their varied and profound experience in an aesthetic and dynamic venue, recalling the clinical sign-out of your training years.

The introduction to Cancer Cytopathology's inaugural Supplement (Volume 125/Issue 6/June 2017) leads with the concept that cytopathology is the nexus for patient-centered care. The convergence of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, refinements in imaging and guided biopsies, molecular testing and whole genome sequencing, the emergence of targeted therapies, and the awakening of pathologists to their critical role in patient care, safety and outcomes have created a new force in medicine: pathologists are critical members of the health care team and patients are at the center of their concerns and efforts.

Immersive Cytopathology Experience (ICE) has been redesigned for presentation at a fabulous venue in Reykjavik, Iceland, combining concepts from Diagnostic Cytopathology and classical ICE (a hands-on learning experience at the USCAP Interactive Learning Center). There is monumental value in case-based learning that simulates multidisciplinary collaborative interaction of hospital-based tumor boards. This program is highlighted by the interaction of interventional cytopathologists with a surgeon, exemplary patient, and challenging cases from academic institutions, focusing on head and neck clinical lesions.

Classification schemes, the molecular and genetic basis of head and neck disease, procedural approaches to specimen acquisition and processing, empathetic communication, quality and patient safety, and measuring the non-clinical performance of the academic pathologist contribute texture and depth to this learning experience. The schedule accommodates time for you to experience ICELAND, from The Blue Lagoon to the Northern Lights and locations where Game of Thrones is filmed. USCAP is transforming how we learn and where we learn. From a 15th century convent in Florence to the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Iceland, learners "come from away" for their unique and enduring experience.

USCAP Presents:
Practical Neuropathology for Today's Practice

Neuropathology cases provide a particular challenge for practicing surgical pathologists because they are less common than cases from other organ systems, typically comprising fewer than 1% of cases in most practices, and are relatively more complex. Consequently, pathologists have less experience with neuropathology which translates to less comfort in making diagnoses. These mentoring sessions with experts are intended to provide practicing pathologists and pathologists-in-training with strategies relating to how to approach a case, differential diagnostic considerations, ancillary testing useful to resolving differential diagnoses, and the clinical implications of their diagnostic decisions. This is your opportunity to increase your comfort level, confidence and expertise in the interpretation and classification of neuropathology cases you will inevitably see in your diverse practices.

USCAP Presents:
Updates of the WHO Classification of Brain and Pituitary Tumors

For the first time, the 2016 WHO classification of central nervous system (CNS) tumors uses molecular parameters in addition to histology to define many tumor entities, thus formulating a concept for how CNS tumor diagnoses should be structured in the molecular era. These new updates will facilitate clinical, experimental and epidemiological studies that will lead to improvements in the lives of patients with brain tumors. General pathologists, in particular, must become familiar with changes in diagnostic criteria and utilize them in their practice improvement strategies. The WHO classification of pituitary adenomas was revised in 2017 and includes (1) a recommendation for the assessment of pituitary transcription factors with focus on adenohypophysial-cell lineage and (2) replacement of “atypical adenoma” with “high risk adenoma” based on tumor proliferation markers and other clinical parameters (such as invasion) to predict aggressiveness. This course will illustrate and reinforce these important updates.

USCAP Presents:
Interactive Microscopy with Authors of the Fascicles

Diagnostic surgical pathology is a rapidly evolving field, informed by discoveries in molecular genetics and improvements in tumor classification. Uterine, hepatic, bone, lymphoma, gastroesophageal and soft tissue tumor pathology are examples of subspecialty areas that have made dramatic changes in recent years. Surgical pathologists must become familiar with recent changes in tumor classification, recently developed diagnostic markers, recently discovered molecular genetic alterations and evolving diagnostic criteria for neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders in surgical pathology. They must also be intuitively conversant with relevant differential diagnoses, ordering appropriate panels of markers and molecular tests, and applying diagnostic criteria to arrive at specific diagnoses.

As a companion interactive microscopy course to the "Fascicles", and with a superbly experienced and creative, visually motivated faculty, this USCAP-ARP experience promises unparalleled mentoring in an aesthetic ambiance, driven by the art of microscopic images.

USCAP Presents:
Pediatric Pathology: Selected Topics for General Surgical Pathologists

The practice of pediatric pathology differs significantly from that of adult surgical pathology: certain tumor types and medical conditions are much more common in the pediatric population (e.g., celiac disease, soft tissue sarcomas); the microscopic appearances of certain diseases common to pediatric and adult populations often differ (e.g., non-necrotizing granulomas are much more common in pediatric patients with Crohn's disease compared with adults); and molecular techniques are more commonly employed in the workup of pediatric neoplasia.

This course is intended to familiarize general surgical pathologists with pediatric specimens that occur less commonly in their practices. Highly skilled pediatric pathologists will share their expertise in an intimate mentoring experience at the USCAP Interactive Center where learning is an inevitability.

Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
Course Directors: Theonia K. Boyd, M.D. and Jeffrey D. Goldsmith, M.D.
