The 20th International Surgical Pathology Symposium will be held May 6-9 at the Swissotel in Tallinn, Estonia. Addressing unique challenges and problems encountered in today’s practice, participants will have the opportunity to review 38 case histories, examine images by virtual microscopy, and formulate diagnoses.
Registration is now open for the symposium. The deadline to register is April 3.
Upon completion of the conference, participants should be able to:
- Identify common diagnostic problems of pathologies selected for study
- Classify each case according to pathology subtype
- Grade, where appropriate, specific histologic subtype of lesion identified
- Utilize, in a cost-effective manner, ancillary testing including immunoperoxidase stains, in situ hybridization studies, and molecular testing based on reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and DNA sequencing methods
- Interpret ancillary tests in the context of clinical practice for study cases
- Assess outcome data for a specific study case and how that may impact the utility of special, ancillary test results
- Enumerate the treatment options of each case diagnosis
- Integrate the crucial role of communication between the clinician and the pathologist and how that interaction moves the routine and ancillary pathologic findings in a study case into the area of high-quality cost-effective patient care
