Bony Pathology: A Technologist Perspective [0]
Course sponsor: Medical Technology Management Institute
Skeletal radiography still makes up a major portion of medical imaging, principally due to its superior spatial resolution. In this webinar, we will analyze bone radiographic images of various body parts using a series of 12 radiographic factors commonly employed by radiologists. Features such as the bony cortex, trabeculae, and periosteum will be studied, as well as bone fractures and neoplasms. A consistent theme in this session will be role the radiographer plays in optimizing image quality in order to visualize bony pathologies.   Contact hours - 3.00

Combined Analysis of Tumor Buds, Lymphocytic Infiltration and Their Spatial Relationship Within the Tumor Microenvironment Improves Prognostic Accuracy Colorectal Cancer [0]
Course sponsor: Indica Labs
While lymphocytic infiltration and tumor buds (TBs), isolated clusters of aggressive cancer cells, have been shown to correlate with clinical outcome in CRC independently, the clinical significance of their interaction with one another has not been reported. Using multiplexed immunofluorescence and HALO® image analysis to quantitatively assess immune contexture and TBs within the tumor microenvironment, a research team at the University of St. Andrews investigated this interaction in patients with stage II colorectal cancer. A novel prognostic signature, derived from the combined analysis of TBs, lymphocytic infiltration and the spatial relationship between them, was identified which reports a more significant cohort stratification than TBs alone, Immunoscore, or the clinical gold standard, pT stage. In this webinar, Ines Nearchou from the University of St. Andrews will discuss the methodology and the results of the study which were recently published in Cancer Immunology Research. By way of introduction, Dr. Kate Lillard Tunstall, CSO at Indica Labs, will highlight briefly some of the HALO image analysis tools which were used in the study.   Contact hours - 1.00

Ex Vivo Microscopy (EVM) Systems: Functional Requirements and CAP Checklist Compliance [0]
Course sponsor: College of American Pathologists (CAP)
In vivo microscopy (IVM) systems utilize imaging technologies such as confocal microscopy, optical coherence tomography, and multiphoton microscopy to provide real-time tissue or cellular level details. It is possible to adapt these systems for use in the Anatomic Pathology laboratory (ex vivo microscopy) while still meeting CAP Anatomic Pathology checklist requirements. Doing so also enables application with real-time results for histologic evaluation of specimens for margins, assessment of tissue adequacy for diagnosis, and selection of tissue for molecular studies or biorepository. Learning Objectives: Discuss possible applications of IVM systems in the Anatomic Pathology laboratory. Discuss the approach to developing functional requirements for selected EVM applications. Understand the CAP checklist items that apply to the use of EVM technologies.   Contact hours - 1.00

Histopathology and The CSI Effect [0]
Course sponsor: National Society for Histotechnology (NSH)
This webinar will discuss the history of forensic science and how it relates to the autopsy. We will also discuss the role of the autopsy in pop culture. Lastly, we will analyze the role of popular culture in the American legal and death investigation system.   Contact hours - 1.00

Insider’s Guide to Getting Your Lab’s Claims Paid [0]
Course sponsor: Laboratory Economics
Gain important insights & practical tips from two nationally-recognized billing experts in dealing with today’s onerous reimbursement climate which is seeing Medicare, Medicaid & private insurers erect new barriers to payment of both clinical laboratory and anatomic pathology claims. Growing financial pressure driven by the second year of Medicare cuts under PAMA and lower rates demanded by private insurers make it critical that labs and pathology groups maximize their collections and minimize unpaid claims. Key obstacles that must be overcome include navigating preauthorization requirements and efficiently billing and collecting directly from patients with copay and deductible responsibilities.   Contact hours - 1.25

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy [0]
Course sponsor: Medical Technology Management Institute
Stereotactic breast biopsy is used to obtain pathologic information from mammographic areas of suspicion. When a mass, microcalcifications, or area of abnormal tissue change exist, stereotactic breast biopsy offers a minimally invasive alternative to open surgical biopsy, often before a mass develops. This webinar offers the attendee the opportunity to learn the basics, as well as the tricks of the trade from an experienced technologist and supervisor. MTMI believes this education will bridge gaps in training, so that intelligent performance becomes your daily mode of operation in your imaging centers. Critical thinking becomes possible once attendees develop an understanding why and how this procedure is done. In addition to covering quality assurance and patient documentation, the seminar reviews the ACR accreditation requirements, and fulfills the credits required for accreditation.   Contact hours - 8.00

The Generation and Use of Carrier-Based Multi-Tissue-Blocks (CBMTBs) for IHC Applications [0]
Course sponsor: National Society for Histotechnology (NSH)
Paraffin blocks containing several tissues have become a major tool in surgical pathology. As multi-tissue blocks, they usually consist of few rather large samples and as tissue micro-arrays they may contain up to several hundred small sized tissue cores. This webinar will discuss a novel approach using carrier-based multi-tissue blocks (CBMTBs) to generate multi-tissue blocks employing tissue as a carrier in which tissue cores are inserted. The webinar will cover the application of CBMTMs and its benefits   Contact hours - 1.00
