Pathology and Cytology of the Lung, Pleura, Mediastinum and Heart/Lung Transplantation

February 7-9, 2019

Available Credits 20 CME, 20 SAM

Course Description

Pathologists are generally unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural and mediastinal pathology, leading to diagnostic errors.  Furthermore, issues related to heart/lung transplantation require specialized knowledge and experience.  Interactive microscopy at the USCAP Learning Center provides a unique and intimate mentoring opportunity to discuss interstitial lung disease, pleuro-pulmonary malignancies, transplant rejection, and the cytomorphologic representation of specimens from these sites, including best practices for optimal triage of lung cancer specimens for molecular testing.

Course Objectives

  • Establish criteria for the diagnosis of a variety of pulmonary lesions
  • Establish criteria for the diagnosis of mesothelioma and benign mesothelial proliferations
  • Establish criteria for the cytologic diagnosis of pulmonary, pleural and mediastinal lesions
  • Establish criteria for the diagnosis of benign and malignant mediastinal lesions
  • Establish criteria for the diagnosis of heart/lung transplant rejection and its mimics
