Diagnostic Challenges in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology 2018

What it USCAP ?

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, abbreviated USCAP, is the largest North American organization of pathologists. It is the publisher to two major pathology journals, Laboratory Investigation and Modern Pathology.

Course Description

The diagnosis of soft tissue and bone tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The discovery of specific immunohistochemical markers and molecular genetic alterations drives the evolution of soft tissue tumor classification. If you are a surgical pathologist who struggles with accurate diagnosis of these challenging neoplasms, this is the course for you! Learn from experts in an environment that simulates clinical sign out.

Target Audience

Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:

  • Refine skills in diagnosing a wide range of soft tissue and bone tumors 
  • Select appropriate panels of immunohistochemical markers for soft tissue and bone tumors 
  • Enhance interpretation of results of molecular genetic studies in the context of histology of soft tissue and bone tumors

Continuing Medical Education and Continuing Certification

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology designates this enduring material for a maximum of 11.5  AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
