About The Meeting
This program is a synthesis of updates and practical perspectives on breast surgical pathology and selected cytopathology topics. Learners will receive state of the science information on DCIS of the breast, mammary mesenchymal lesions, breast papillary diseases, and axillary lymph nodes. Cytology topics to be covered include mediastinal cytology, EUS FNA, cytomorphology of cystic and solid pancreatic tumors, exfoliative anal cytology and interpretation of cerebrospinal fluid cytology.

Target Audience
Pathologists and pathologists in training who practice cytopathology and/or breast surgical pathology.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Accurately diagnosis mammary ductal carcinoma in situ, including unusual morphologic variants.
  • Discuss recent literature on current concepts of DCIS management, including observation.
  • Recognize common mesenchymal breast tumors by both histology and cytology.
  • Apply ancillary IHC testing interpretation / results to subclassification of non-small cell lung cancers.
  • Create a differential diagnosis of spindle cell lesions of the GI tract as encountered in EUS FNA.
  • Make important decisions regarding atypia and malignancy in cystic and solid pancreatic neoplasms.
  • Feel comfortable with interpretation of papillary lesions in breast core and excisional biopsies.
  • Converse with clinical colleagues in an informed way regarding AR testing in breast carcinomas.
  • Recognize histologically important mimics of metastatic disease in axillary lymph nodes.
  • Interpret exfoliative anal cytology and understand the meaning of interpretations in clinical context.
  • Recognize cytomorphologic pitfalls encountered in interpreting CSF light microscopy.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
