Arthur Purdy Stout Society of Surgical Pathologists

How Has Molecular Pathology Recently Changed My Diagnostic Surgical Pathology Practice?

Credits: 3 CME and 3 SAMs

Sunday, March 13, 2016
8:30 AM- 12:00 PM

Moderators: Jason L. Hornick, MD, PhD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA
Vania Nosé, MD, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA

Course Description:
Surgical pathology continues to evolve as genetic alterations and increasingly specific immunohistochemical markers are identified. These new tools improve the ability of surgical pathologists to arrive at specific diagnoses for optimal patient care. This symposium will focus on the ways in which molecular pathology has recently changed surgical pathology practice in a wide range of organ systems.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Approach the differential diagnosis of challenging areas in surgical pathology.
  2. Understand how to apply new diagnostic immunohistochemical markers and molecular genetic findings to select differential diagnoses in surgical pathology.
