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

Invasive Tumor Detection (PDS) [0]
Course sponsor: Visiopharm
Biomarkers used for diagnosing breast cancer are often observed to be differently expressed within non-invasive tumor structures, such as ductal carcinoma in situ, compared to invasive tumor structures. Thus, if no discrimination between invasive and non-invasive cancer is made results will be biased. To assist pathologists in the assessment of breast tissue slides Visiopharm has developed a novel image analysis application for invasive tumor detection. Join us for this webinar to gain insights into how a discrimination between invasive and non-invasive tumor is possible, and how this can increase the diagnostic confidence when assessing breast tissue slides.   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
