Diagnostic Pitfalls in Urologic Pathology - Palm Springs
Diagnostic Pitfalls in Urologic Pathology is organized by United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) and will be held during Sep 22 - 23, 2018 at USCAP Interactive Center, Palm Springs, California, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Prostate needle core biopsies, transurethral resections of prostate, radical prostatectomy specimens, kidney biopsies, nephrectomy specimens, bladder biopsies, partial or total cystectomy specimens, testicular biopsies and orchiectomy specimens are frequently handled by pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists in academic institutions and private practices. The spectrum of experience and frequency of disease entities are variable. These specimens present diagnostic challenges and risks to the pathologists who evaluate them. This course, based on pragmatic consultation cases and some routine, in-house cases is designed to reinforce accurate diagnoses, avoid diagnostic pitfalls and close existing professional practice gaps.
• Recognize the most common benign mimics of prostate cancer; identify therapy-related changes in the prostate; increase awareness of potential diagnostic pitfalls
• Identify secondary tumors involving the prostate, tumors arising from the prostatic urethra, and histologic variants of prostate cancer
• Update pathologists on newly-described entities in renal neoplasia, including diagnostic guidelines for utilizing immunohistochemistry in the work-up of renal tumors
• Develop a systematic approach to the diagnosis of bladder lesions, primary and secondary bladder tumors, benign mimics of malignancy and to staging criteria
• Introduce new concepts and entities presented in the WHO 2016 Classification of Testicular Tumors including differential diagnoses, morphologic mimics and prognostic significance
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
