Classic Lectures in Pathology: What You Need to Know: Endocrine Pathology - A Video CME Teaching Activity 2019

About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME Activity offers a practical review of endocrine pathology combining basic to advanced techniques, pearls and pitfalls to pathologic diagnosis and case reviews.

Target Audience
This CME activity is intended and designed to educate pathologists.

Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Utilize strict and well-defined criteria in the evaluation and diagnosis of thyroid follicular lesions.
  • 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.
  • Recognize the different types of tissue fragments in FNAB specimens, recognize several cytomorphologic patterns of FNAB specimens, and render a diagnosis based on a pattern recognition of FNAB specimen.
  • Discuss the newer aspects of molecular alterations in thyroid neoplasms.
  • Review the approach to difficult lesions of the salivary glands.
  • Render a diagnosis based on pattern recognition of thyroid FNAB specimens and formulate a broad differential diagnosis.
  • Recognize the basic architectural pattern seen with salivary gland aspirates and be able to identify and diagnose common benign and malignant salivary gland lesions.
  • Render a diagnosis based on pattern recognition and salivary gland FNAB specimens and formulate a broad differential diagnosis.
  • Describe the basic technique and pitfall avoidance of fine needle aspiration biopsy performance.
