PITFALLS & PEARLS IN UROLOGIC PATHOLOGY-31ST AUGUST 2019


COURSE DESCRIPTION

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 orchidectomy 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 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.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
  • 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 staging criteria.
  • Introduce new concepts and entities presented in the latest WHO Classification of Testicular Tumors including differential diagnoses, morphologic mimics and prognostic significance
  • Detailed discussion of Urine cytology cases with an overview of The Paris System for reporting urine cytology

PITFALLS & PEARLS IN GYNAECOLOGIC PATHOLOGY-1st September 2019


COURSE DESCRIPTION

The sub-specialized diversity of gynecologic pathology covers numerous sites, diseases and cancers with nuanced details regarding classification of disease, intra-operative consultations, newly-described tests, and staging of gynecologic malignancies. This course concentrates on the intricacies of these complex elements in an effort to enhance what is encountered in real-time clinical practice and introduces surgical pathologists to many of the “pitfalls and pearls” that can be encountered in the routine evaluation and reporting of gynecologic surgical pathology specimens and gynaecologic cytology. Whether you’re in clinical community or academic practice or a pathologist-in-training, this information is invaluable to your performance. Experience intimate mentoring by faculty from leading instutions in India and contribute to good clinical care.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
  • Develop expertise in the interpretation of gynecologic frozen section, gynaecological cytology and biopsy specimens
  • Adequately use and interpret some of the most commonly used adjunctive studies in gynecologic pathology
  • Evaluate staging pathologic parameters in gynecologic cancer consistently and precisely
  • Develop comprehensive differential diagnoses in gynecologic pathology and use up-to-date knowledge and tools in resolving them
