Item Name: Diagnostic Approach to Lymphoproliferative Neoplasms in Cytology Specimens
Oscar Lin, MD, PhD
Presentation Date: September 24, 2013; Expires: September 24, 2016
Lymphoproliferative lesions are commonly seen in cytology specimens, including needle aspirations as well as exfoliative cytology. Accurate diagnosis of these lesions requires correlation of the morphologic findings with ancillary studies and clinical findings. Knowledge of the limitations in cytology cases is important to avoid unnecessary work up and misinterpretation. The objective of this presentation is to provide a methodological approach to lymphoproliferative lesions in cytology specimens.

Item Name: Lymph Node Fine Needle Aspiration: A Morphologic Approach
Leonard Bloom, MPH, CT(ASCP)
Presentation Date: March 23, 2010; Expires: March 23, 2013
Cytologic interpretation of lymph node aspirates is challenging. They present a unique set of diagnostic and architectural features. This teleconference strives to de-mystify the evaluation process. The focus is on diagnosing malignant lymphoma via pattern and morphologic recognition. Metastatic disease processes are differentiated from primary malignancies, and effective cytopreparatory techniques are discussed.
