The 22nd International Surgical Pathology Symposium addresses unique challenges and problems encountered in today’s practice. Participants will review case histories, examine images by virtual microscopy, and formulate diagnoses. The unique subtleties and differentiating characteristics of each diagnosis will be highlighted. Participants will also discuss the patient management strategy used in each case.
During the four-day conference, 37 cases will be presented and discussed. Three to four specialty areas will be featured each day to include:
Head & Neck Pathology
Bone & Soft Tissue Pathology
And important surgical pathology practice issues and concerns
This course is designed for practicing surgical pathologists. Other medical laboratory scientists or physicians interested in enhancing their delivery of care may also benefit from this program.
Upon completion of the conference, participants should be able to:
Identify and resolve common diagnostic dilemmas.
Interpret appropriate ancillary tests for study cases.
Enumerate treatment options of each case diagnosis.
Integrate diagnostic, clinical, and pathologic challenges within pathologist/clinician communication.
