A Practical Approach to Problematic Breast Lesions

January 8-10, 2019

Available Credits 17 CME, 17 SAM

Course Description

This interactive microscopy course, taught by experts from Harvard Medical School, Stanford and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is designed to eliminate a variety of practice gaps in diagnostic breast pathology.

In general, there is a misdiagnosis rate of about 10% in breast biopsies, which may be even higher for some notoriously problematic lesions. This course (through intimate mentoring) attempts to reduce or eliminate diagnostic error by highlighting pitfalls and illustrating practical approaches to resolve them, using routine microscopic examination of H&E-stained sections with appropriate ancillary testing. The intended outcome is improved clinical practice and patient outcomes.

Course Objectives

  • Evaluate diagnostic criteria and clinical significance of various common and uncommon benign, in situ and malignant lesions of the breast
  • Describe differential diagnostic problems commonly encountered in breast pathology and develop strategies to resolve them in the practice environment
  • Utilize the latest information on the uses and limitations of immunohistochemistry in resolving diagnostic problems in breast pathology
