Interpreting the Endometrial Biopsy: A Multimedia Microscopic Tutorial – Harvard Medical School
November 19, 2016 - November 20, 2016$600
Unusual presentations of common disorders in endometrial pathology challenge pathologists’ diagnostic interpretive abilities. This course is designed to improve participants’ diagnostic abilities in such demanding cases. The course offers a unique format combining classroom teaching with digital (virtual microscopy) presentations of known case examples and unknown challenge cases. Participants will be able to express their opinion of unknown cases using an electronic voting system, the results of which will be summarized for the group. Each registrant will also receive an illustrated course syllabus. This course is relevant to any pathologist engaged in the interpretation of endometrial biopsies as well as clinicians managing patients with the endometrial disease.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Integrate pathophysiologic concepts into diagnostic practice
- Recognize sampling and interpretive limitations in diagnosis of endometrial pathology
- Discuss the diagnosis of endometrial precancers and apply new EIN criteria
- Diagnose hormonal effects on endometrial morphology
Participants will learn:
- Criteria for diagnosis of common benign, preneoplastic, and neoplastic endometrial lesions
- How to recognize lesions that are non-diagnostic
- New scientific information which may assist in recognition of precancers
- Their own diagnostic strengths and weaknesses
- The degree to which even experts disagree on diagnosis of certain lesions
- Useful strategies for resolving diagnostic conflicts in an imperfect system
The Target Audience for this course is Pathologists and Gynecologists.
