A Practical Approach to Surgical and Cytopathology Vol. II - A Video CME Teaching Activity

About This CME Teaching Activity
This activity is designed to provide a comprehensive and practical review of gastrointestinal, hepatic, genitourinary, pancreaticobiliary, breast and cytopathology, as well as an overview of diagnostic immunohistochemistry and other ancillary diagnostic techniques. Faculty discuss diagnostic pitfalls and pearls for an accurate diagnosis, as well as provide a comprehensive review of appropriate ancillary diagnostic techniques.
Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily designed to educate practicing pathologists.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Describe the various cytomorphologic features of metastatic malignancies, emphasizing differential diagnosis, pitfalls and clues to determine a primary site of origin.
  • Discuss the use of ancillary studies in the work-up of metastases, with particular emphasis on immunohistochemistry using an algorithmic approach.
  • Utilize strict and well-defined criteria in the evaluation and diagnosis of thyroid follicular lesions.
  • Discuss the diagnostic features and differential diagnosis of columnar cell lesions of the breast.
  • Discuss the diagnostic features and differential diagnosis of papillary lesions of the breast.
  • Describe the diagnostic features and clinical significance of a variety of breast lesions with particular reference to the implications of these diagnoses in core needle biopsy specimens.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of granulomas in the liver.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of infectious enterocolitides and non-infectious entities that they mimic.
  • Describe the diagnostic criteria for inflammatory lesions of the appendix.
  • Identify the subtle histomorphologic features that can help to distinguish well-differentiated ductal adenocarcinoma from the reactive changes in the pancreas.
  • Describe the anatomic/histologic compartments of the ampulla and their significance in the versatility and subclassification of ampullary cancers.
  • Evaluate new concepts in terminology and histologic grading of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
  • Discuss recent modifications related to prostate cancer grading and how it relates to active surveillance.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
