Diagnostic Cytopathology 2018
EYE OF THE NEEDLE: Core and FNA Insights in Minimally Invasive Cytopathology
This course has been revised to emphasize the procedural aspects of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsies and to compare the appearance of samples in cellular and core histologic formats to optimize ancillary studies and rapid diagnoses. Additional organ systems have been included, primarily bone and soft tissue. Whether you’re a committed cytopathologist or a pathologist confronted with cytopathology in your general practice, this course will update your knowledge and stimulate your comprehension and confidence.

LIVER PATHOLOGY CAN BE FUN - REALLY
The diagnosis of soft tissue and bone tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The discovery of specific histochemical markers and molecular genetic alterations drives the evolution soft tissue classification. If you are a surgical pathologist who struggles with accurate diagnosis of these challenging neoplasms, this is the course for you!
