COURSE DESCRIPTION

The diagnosis of soft tissue 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 intimate mentoring environment that simulates clinical sign out.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

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