Postponed: 3rd Biennial Conference: Cytopathology, Small Biopsy and Molecular Updates and Review



Physicians need the most up-to-date knowledge and strategies in clinical pathology to provide the most appropriate ancillary testing and patient care. In order to address this need, this activity will provide the following:

  • Define risk stratification based on cytology and HPV testing in gynecologic cytology
  • Discuss urinary cytology reporting terminology and risk of malignancy associated with each
  • Understand the role of HPV testing in oropharyngeal cancers
  • Apply appropriate molecular testing of small specimens for management of lung cancers
  • Describe the diagnosis, molecular testing and management of thyroid nodules and update to Thyroid Bethesda System Reporting
  • Discuss how the risk of malignancy in reporting terminology is affected by inclusion of noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like features (NIFTP)

Physicians, residents and fellows, pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, residents and fellows in pathology, ENT, endocrinology, urology, and internal medicine will benefit from this course.
