Molecular Diagnostics: Cancer Diagnosis and Patient Management 2021

Learn Now: Advances in Molecular Diagnostics

In Molecular Diagnostics: Cancer Diagnosis and Patient Management, experts in the field review current concepts and up-to-date techniques, delving into the appropriate use of molecular assays for different tumor types to inform diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment using evidence-based guidelines.

Lectures in this online CME course illustrate common diagnostic pitfalls, with additional focus on variant interpretation and the complexity of billing for molecular tests. It’s continuing medical education that will help you to:

  • Develop appropriate tissue-handling protocols
  • Evaluate cytogenetic and molecular techniques, including next generation sequencing assays
  • Recognize cost-effective, time-sensitive approaches to molecular studies, including cell free DNA testing
  • Determine the process of clinical interpretation of genetic variation
  • Analyze costs and potential sources of revenue for molecular diagnostics programs
  • Consider essential and emerging biomarkers in common adult and pediatric solid and liquid tumors
