ASC: Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration - Challenges & Pitfalls [Cme]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is an important procedure for evaluating mediastinal masses and lymphadenopathy given its minimally invasive nature and ability to spare patients from having more invasive procedures (e.g. EBUS-TBNA for lung cancer staging in lieu of mediastinoscopy). The on-site evaluation of these FNAs is essential in order to answer an important question (ex. neoplastic vs. non-neoplastic) and to decide if a more invasive procedure is required. Due to the importance of the clinical decisions and the need to have rapid answers based on limited material, it is essential for pathologists to understand how far they can go in their immediate assessment and how the diagnosis rendered will impact the surgical decision making. This webinar will emphasize the diagnostic challenges and pitfalls in a casebased approach.   Contact hours - 1.00

ASC: Fine Needle Aspiration and Biopsy in the Management of Ovarian Cancer Including Potential Pitfalls [Cme]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Ovarian carcinoma is the most common cause of death of patients with gynecologic cancer. These neoplasms are often high grade and approximately 75% are diagnosed at advanced stage with peritoneal involvement (stage III) or distant spread (stage IV). Currently, many patients receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) prior to definitive surgery. The goal of NACT is to reduce morbidity and mortality and to increase the likelihood of optimal debulking. Many of these patients undergo fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of omental or pelvic tumors to determine the histologic type and grade of malignancy, and to distinguish gynecologic malignancies from other tumors. An accurate diagnosis on FNAB is critical so that the clinician can determine the role of NACT for the patient. Reaching an accurate diagnosis involves several steps, including assessment of adequacy (so that sufficient material is available for interpretation and IHC), work-up of the case, and interpretation. This webinar will cover all of these steps and will highlight potential pitfalls. A case presentation format will be used to cover the most common diagnoses, difficult diagnoses and unusual cases.   Contact hours - 1.00

Assessment Options in Hormonal Dysregulation [0]
Course sponsor: Australian Traditional-Medicine Society (ATMS)
In this webinar, you will learn: The concept of pathophysiologic and diagnostic-specific testing panels to aid in the detection of mediators of hormone synthesis and metabolism. When to use which sample for testing. The evidence of correlation between samples. Interpretation of test results. Unpacking specific markers in Functional pathology contained in blood, urine, or saliva revealing significant hormonal imbalances in simple to complex hormonally associated health conditions.

NCCN 2017 Congress Webinar Series™: Lung Cancer - New Strategies to Improve the Accuracy of Lung Cancer Screening [0]
Course sponsor: National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN)
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, pathologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with lung cancer and those being screened for lung cancer. Following this activity, participants should be able to: Discuss the risk assessment process used to determine whether patients are candidates for lung cancer screening. Evaluate and follow-up the findings of different types of nodules that may be detected on low-dose computed tomography. Identify when to recommend further screening, biopsy, surgical excision of nodules based on recommendations in the NCCN Guidelines® for Lung Cancer Screening. Appropriately counsel patients about the risks and benefits of lung cancer screening.   Contact hours - 1.50

Pancreaticobiliary Cytology: Problem Cases [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
EUS-FNAs of pancreatic masses and bile duct brushings are effective modalities in the diagnostic workup of patients with suspected neoplasms. Nonetheless, diagnostically challenging cases are occasionally encountered. How do we as pathologists communicate our level of concern for neoplasm in our reports when we cannot render a definitive cytologic diagnosis and how will this affect the patient’s clinical management? What adjunct testing modalities are available to reconcile indeterminate cytologic interpretations? This webinar will emphasize what pathologists need to include in a report if an indeterminate diagnosis (atypical/suspicious) is rendered and what the possible clinical implications of that report could be.   Contact hours - 1.00
