Description

Society for Ultrastructural Pathology

Small Blue Cell Tumors

Sunday, March 13, 2016
8:30 AM 12:00 PM
CC 605

Moderator: Guillermo A. Herrera, MD, LSU Health, Shreveport, LA

Course Description:
The topic of this years meeting was determined by the Society for Ultrastructural Pathology Board of Directors. Open deliberation of its members concluded this was a timely topic to address at the USCAP. Topic was chosen as this group of tumors often requires the use of various techniques for their speciation. The value of the use of ancillary diagnostic techniques, including electron microscopy, in the diagnosis of this group of neoplasms is well recognized. Ultrastructural pathology plays a key role in the diagnosis of small blue cell tumors. The target audience include: general surgical pathologists, trainees, academic pathologists, and ultrastructural pathologists and technicians/scientists who engage in diagnostic transmission electron microscopy.

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

  1. Define role of ancillary diagnostic techniques in the diagnosis of small blue cell tumors in different sites.
  2. Address the specific role of electron microscopy in today’s healthcare environment in the evaluation/classification of these neoplasms.
  3. Emphasize the important complementary role of ancillary diagnostic techniques in the evaluation/diagnosis of small blue cell tumors in children and adults, and in cytopathology specimens.
  4. Evaluate cost-efficient use of ancillary diagnostic techniques when confronted with small blue cell tumors.
