Programme organised by Dr Ashish Chandra and Dr Miguel Perez-Machado

In this one-day symposium we will discuss a selection of specimen types with challenging morphology and their ancillary tests. Attendees will hear about the role of molecular testing on cytology specimens, particularly of the thyroid. This symposium is aimed at trainees and consultants in cytopathology, particularly those newly qualified or interested in updating their knowledge.
