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

ASC: Patterns and Pitfalls of Common and Uncommon Entities of the Endocervix [Cme]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
This is a case-based didactic webinar that explores a variety of endocervical lesions with emphasis on the correlation between cytology and histology. Participants will be presented with a spectrum of cases, with diagnoses ranging from benign to premalignant to malignant. A review of common and uncommon entities will focus on how pathologists can avoid pitfalls, use ancillary studies appropriately, and distinguish among morphologically pointers on differentiating between high grade squamous lesions involving glands and true glandular lesions, as well as insights into the pitfalls associated with metaplasia, polyps, and endometrial sampling. Key features for diagnosis and work up of uncommon lesions will also be discussed, including various subtypes of endocervical adenocarcinoma. In addition, a review of current management guidelines for glandular lesions will facilitate more effective communication of diagnoses to other members of the patient’s healthcare team.   Contact hours - 1.00

ASC: Pulmonary Cytology Guidelines – PSC Companion [Cme]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
This webinar describes the recommendations by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology for categorization of respiratory specimens. The categorization scheme includes diagnostic criteria as well as malignancy risk estimates for each category. Six categories are used: nondiagnostic, negative for malignancy, atypical, neoplastic, suspicious for malignancy, and malignant. The two indeterminate categories of atypical and suspicious are clinically useful because they stratify malignancy risk. The neoplastic category is useful for its ability to deal with non-malignant neoplasms and stratify them into benign and low grade. Molecular testing of non-small cell carcinomas will be briefly addressed.   Contact hours - 1.00

ASC: The Cell Block, the Empowerment of Cytology in Precision Medicine [Cme]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
This webinar will provide the participants with tools to help assess adequacy of the cell block during the procurement phase. Discussion will focus on how different types of fixation contribute to the ability of the specimen to coagulate or solubilize during centrifugation. The importance of developing both a consistent process for creating a cell block, as well as taking the time to educate histology colleagues of pre-analytic issues that are directly proportional to the success of the preparation. Additional techniques that can be incorporatated in the lab using both alcohol fixed and air dried smears to salvage ancillary testing despite cell block failure will be addressed.   Contact hours - 1.00

Imaging-Based Subtypes of Pancreatic Cancer [0]
Course sponsor: Xtalks
The outcomes of pancreatic cancer have seen little improvement over the past three decades. The disease is associated with a poor prognosis and lack of response to chemotherapy and radiation. To date, there are no reliable ways to separate patients into prognostic groups based on the cancer biology, which would be expected to help tailor therapy for each individual. To address the need to stratify patients, we hypothesized that diagnostic computed tomography (CT) imaging would reveal differences in the biological properties of pancreatic cancer and patient outcomes. Definiens has developed quantitative methods to analyze the CT images and diagnostic pathology of patients, associating these measurements with outcomes. A distinct imaging signature of pancreatic cancer has been identified that associated with the amount of stroma in the tumor microenvironment, the biology of the cancer cells, response to treatments, and survival outcomes of the patients. The findings indicate that quantitative characterization of routine diagnostic scans for pancreatic cancer can provide clinically and biologically meaningful information to help physicians make treatment decisions   Contact hours - 1.00

Luo Channels and Muscle Channels with Giovanni Maciocia: Physiology, Pathology, and Acupuncture Treatment [0]
Course sponsor: Lotus Institute of Integrative Medicine
Dr. Giovanni Maciocia is one of the most highly respected practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in Europe. In this course, join Dr. Maciocia as he shares important insights of the luo and muscle channels. Luo channels are a network of channels that interlaces the entire body. There are two difference levels –superficial and deep. Muscle channels are a network of secondary channels that include both muscle and tendon. This course will present the physiology, pathology, and clinical use of the luo and muscle channels. The pathways of the luo channels from the Ling Shu will be described in detail, and the distinction between the luo area and luo channel highlighted.
