2017 Molecular Pathology Update [0]
Course sponsor: CodeMap
The procedure coding rules and conventions concerning molecular pathology continue to evolve as the number of laboratories that perform this type of testing increases. In addition, both CMS and its contractors have implemented numerous reimbursement and coverage provisions that govern the performance of this advanced laboratory testing. Laboratory professionals must stay informed and understand these complex rules to ensure compliance and appropriate payment. This CodeMap® Webinar is essential for all providers of molecular pathology. The following will be covered: Choosing the Right Code: Make sure you understand the coding and reporting rules for: Analysis of Single Genes Genomic Sequencing Procedures Multigene Cancer Panels Other Multi-Analyte Nucleic Acid Assays Infectious Agents   Contact hours - 1.50

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
