Educational Objectives

At the end of the 2014- 2015 Cyto-econference Series, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify cytomorphologic characteristics of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the major organ systems such as female genital tract, hepatobiliary system, pancreas, lung, urinary tract, in addition to lesions seen in the soft tissue and pediatric population.
  • Recognize key cytopathologic features of normal and disease states in a variety of clinical specimens including conventional and liquid-based preparations of exfoliative samples (washings, brushings, CSF, serous cavity fluids, urine) and fine needle aspirations.
  • Discuss current issues in gynecologic cytopathology, pitfalls, HPV testing and legal ramifications.
  • Identify the role and limitations of new and emerging technologies in clinical cytopathology, including telepathology, image analysis, automation, flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry and molecular/cytogenetic techniques such as next generation sequencing.
  • Discuss various types of quality assurance programs with a goal of improving patient care and meeting federal regulation standards.
