Traps And Pitfalls To Avoid In Urologic Pathology
Traps And Pitfalls To Avoid In Urologic Pathology is organized by United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) and will be held from Sep 24 - 26, 2019 at USCAP West, Palm Springs, California, United States of America.
The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology designates this live activity for a maximum of 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
USCAP is approved by the American Board of Pathology (ABP) to offer Self-Assessment credits (SAMs) for the purpose of meeting the ABP requirements for Continuing Certification (CC). Physicians can earn a maximum of 15 SAM credit hours.
Specimens represented by prostate needle core biopsies, transurethral resection of prostate (TURP), radical prostatectomy, kidney biopsies, nephrectomy (radical or partial), bladder biopsies, cystectomy (radical or partial), cystoprostatectomy, testicular biopsies or orchiectomy are frequently handled by pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists in academic institutions and private practices. These specimens are associated with potential diagnostic challenges and risks in day-to-day practice. This experienced faculty has selected exemplary cases from their expert consultation files (and routine in-house cases) that illustrate recurrent professional practice gaps in urologic pathology. Through intimate mentoring, you will learn how to approach them, make accurate diagnoses, and avoid traps and pitfalls that could cause diagnostic error. The course is pragmatic, clinically-oriented and stimulating.
• Recognize the most common benign mimickers of prostate cancer, identify therapy-related changes in the prostate and be aware of traps and 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 guidelines for using immunohistochemistry in the work-up of renal tumors
• Develop a systematic approach to the diagnosis of bladder lesions, primary and secondary bladder tumors, benign mimickers of malignancy and staging criteria
• Introduce the 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.
