Course Description

Neuropathology cases provide a particular challenge for practicing surgical pathologists because they are less common than cases from other organ systems, typically comprising fewer than 1% of cases in most practices, and are relatively more complex. Consequently, pathologists have less experience with neuropathology which translates to less comfort in making diagnoses. These mentoring sessions with experts are intended to provide practicing pathologists and pathologists-in-training with strategies relating to how to approach a case, differential diagnostic considerations, ancillary testing useful to resolving differential diagnoses, and the clinical implications of their diagnostic decisions. This is your opportunity to increase your comfort level, confidence and expertise in the interpretation and classification of neuropathology cases you will inevitably see in your diverse practices.

Course Objectives

      Develop an approach to handling commonly encountered lesions of the central nervous system
      Learn how to generate differential diagnoses for neuropathologic cases
       encountered in routine practice
      Understand how effectively to employ ancillary testing to resolve differential diagnostic possibilities
      Refine communication skills in conveying important information in the final report of
       neuropathologic lesions
      Increase confidence and comfort in dealing with neuropathology
