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

      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
