Cervical Malignancies and Potential Pap Pitfalls [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Due to successful cervical screening programs, malignant Pap tests are decreasing in number in most laboratories. This leads to fewer opportunities for cytotechnologists and cytopathologists to view cervical malignancies on Pap tests and develop familiarity with cytomorphologic features of malignancy. As the recommended interval between Pap tests increases, prompt recognition of these features will become even more essential in providing quality patient care. This webinar reviews our experience with numerous Paps from confirmed cervical malignancies (squamous and glandular) with pertinent clinical, HPV, and histopathologic data. Key tips and challenging cases will also be discussed.   Contact hours - 1.00

Discrepancies and Errors in Cytology Cases with Emphasis on Recognizing the Sources of Errors [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
This webinar with provide a practical review of a few litigation or mis- diagnosed cytology cases that were identified after correlation with the surgical outcomes. Using case-based presentation; this webinar will present challenging gynecological and non-gynecologic cases. The goal of this webinar will be to increase the skills of cytopatholgists and surgical pathologists to recognize potential diagnostic pitfalls in diagnosis. Erroneous diagnosis can cause delay in diagnosis or sometimes overtreatment and unnecessary surgeries. Our goal is to learn from these mistakes and improve our abilities to prevent future ones. Solutions for handling similar cases with the listing of differential diagnosis, clear cytopathology reporting and finally assessment of surgical outcomes will be provided.   Contact hours - 1.00

Interpretation of FNA Material of Lymph Nodes Involved by Lymphoproliferative Disorders [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Selected common and challenging lymphoproliferative disorders involving lymph nodes and encountered in a current cytopathology practice, will be reviewed in this session. Common pitfalls in the diagnostic assessment of these neoplasms will be reviewed integrating clinical presentation, imaging findings, and ancillary testing. The role of the cytopathologist and cytotechnologist in the multidisciplinary team will also be highlighted.   Contact hours - 1.00

Key Concepts Regarding Cytology, Surgical Pathology, Molecular Testing and Clinical Practice [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Noninvasive Follicular Thyroid Neoplasm with Papillary-like Nuclear Features (NIFTP) is a new entity that is considered to be a non-malignant, yet an in-situ/dysplastic/ pre-malignant process. In this webinar, we will explore the brief history of follicular-patterned thyroid lesions, biologic nature of NIFTP, the specific histopathologic inclusion and exclusion criteria, cytopathologic issues (e.g. change to the rate of malignancy, effect on the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology, and the pre-surgical cytology diagnoses associated with NIFTP), role of molecular testing, and optimal management strategies. How a successful NIFTP implementation would be effective in reducing overdiagnosis and overtreatment will also be addressed.   Contact hours - 1.00

Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology: Opportunities, Limitations and Pitfalls [Cme, Sam, Cmle]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Molecular diagnostics is increasingly being utilized to help guide targeted therapy in solid organ tumors. Cytopathologists are at the forefront of triaging specimens during rapid on-site evaluation and selecting specimens for ancillary testing. Therefore, it is imperative that practicing cytopathologists stay abreast of up-to-date diagnostic and prognostic ancillary tests utilizing limited cytologic material. This presentation will focus on cytologic substrates for ancillary studies, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each, to help the participants triage and devise optimal strategies for ancillary testing in their own practices.   Contact hours - 1.00

Non-Small Cell Carcinoma Biomarker Testing: The Cytopathologist’s Viewpoint [0]
Course sponsor: American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
Many decisions about treatment in lung cancer are made on the basis of specific molecular and protein expression. This webinar is designed to give practicing cytopathologists a general introduction to the targeted therapy testing required for non-small cell lung carcinomas as well as a strategy to maximize limited specimens for several rounds of testing. In this course we will review the pre-analytical factors in specimen collection, from EBUS to biopsy to resection, and consider how specimen collection can affect testing. Finally, we will discuss several case examples alongside the targeted therapy testing followup and consider how to integrate targeted therapy testing into the cytopathologist’s immediate assessment workflow.   Contact hours - 1.00

Oncotopix AI Webinar [0]
Course sponsor: Visiopharm
Artificial intelligence and deep learning are probably the hottest keywords of 2017 within the healthcare research community, strongly driven by amazing state-of-the-art results in computer vision and natural language processing combined with popular media interest. Visiopharm has always believed that the future of digital pathology, from detection and diagnosis to prognosis and treatment decisions, is strongly influenced by advances in pattern recognition, data science and machine learning. Therefore, we are also excited about deep learning technologies as it could seem like a perfect tool for novel applications in digital pathology by unlocking large and high-dimensional datasets in an end-to-end algorithmic learning approach. The reality isn’t that simple but we are dedicated to overcome many of the challenges to bring this technology to our customers.   Contact hours - 1.00

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
