Pathology and Cytology of the Lung, Pleura, Mediastinum and Heart/Lung Transplantation
Pathologists are generally unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural and mediastinal pathology, leading to diagnostic errors. Furthermore, issues related to heart/lung transplantation require specialized knowledge and experience. Interactive microscopy at the USCAP Learning Center provides a unique and intimate mentoring opportunity to discuss interstitial lung disease, pleuro-pulmonary malignancies, transplant rejection, and the cytomorphologic representation of specimens from these sites, including best practices for optimal triage of lung cancer specimens for molecular testing.
