2019 Pathology Review : Hematopathology, Head and Neck Pathology and Fine Needle Aspirations for the General Pathologist

About This CME Teaching Activity

This CME activity is designed to provide a practical review of hematopathology, head and neck pathology, molecular diagnosis and fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Faculty discuss basic to advanced techniques, pitfalls and pearls to pathologic diagnosis. A variety of case reviews emphasize the didactic presentations to round out the program.

Target Audience

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.

Educational Objectives


At the completion of this CME activity, subscribers should be able to:

  • Recognize the different types of tissue fragments in FNAB specimens; recognize several cytomorphologic patterns of FNAB specimens; and render a diagnosis based on a pattern recognition of FNAB specimen.
  • Recognize the basic architectural patterns seen in thyroid aspirates and be able to identify and diagnose common benign and malignant thyroid lesions.
  • Recognize the basic architectural pattern seen with salivary gland aspirates and be able to identify and diagnose common benign and malignant salivary gland lesions.
  • Render a diagnosis based on pattern recognition and salivary gland FNAB specimens and formulate a broad differential diagnosis.
  • Describe the basic technique and pitfall avoidance of fine needle aspiration biopsy performance.
