- Discuss the most useful diagnostic features in distinguishing amongst the various well-differentiated lipomatous tumors.
- Explain the approach to mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract based upon primary cytology of the neoplastic cells.
- Discuss the most common diagnostic entities in the differential diagnosis of highly cellular spindle cell tumors.
- Describe the WHO criteria for the diagnosis of lobular carcinoma in situ and the uses and limitations of e-cadherin immunohistochemistry in evaluating in-situ lesions of the breast.
- Summarize the recent updates in the molecular basis of thyroid neoplasia as well as to understand the historical and practical reasons for the complexity of tumor characterization.
