Item Name: Pediatric Cytopathology: Common Entities and Diagnostic Dilemmas
Sara E. Monaco, MD

Presentation date: June 24, 2014; Expires: June 24, 2017
The webinar will be a practical review and discussion of selected cases in pediatric cytopathology; illustrating a variety of common and uncommon entities seen in young patients.  Each case will be presented with a review of the cytopathological findings, followed by the differential diagnosis and pitfalls to be aware of in children.  There will also be a discussion of the utility of different ancillary studies in select cases.  The cases will cover common infectious, lymphoid, and small round blue cell tumors that occur in pediatric cytopathology, in addition to uncommon entities that one should be aware of and consider in the differential diagnosis.

Item Name: Importance of Rapid On-site Evaluation (ROSE) for EUS-FNA: Endoscopist Observations and Pathologic Diagnosis
Benjamin L. Witt, MD
Douglas G. Adler, MD

Presentation date: September 23, 2014; Expires: September 23, 2017
This archive will begin with an overview of the literature on the impact of rapid on-site evaluation of EUS-guided pancreatic FNAs. A case-based discussion focusing on specimen triage and intra-procedural communication will follow. The cases will center on common entities and their inherent diagnostic challenges. Both the endoscopist’s and pathologist’s perspectives will be presented.

Item Name: Endobronchial Ultrasound Guided Fine Needle Aspiration: Evaluating the Lung and Mediastinum
Barbara E. Chadwick, MD

Presentation date: April 23, 2013; Expires: April 23, 2016
Endobronchial ultrasonography with transbronchial needle aspiration biopsy (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive technique, increasingly being used to sample paratracheal, hilar or mediastinal lymph nodes or mass lesions for staging or diagnosis. EBUS-TBNA consists of fine needle aspiration performed with the assistance of a bronchoscope with an integrated ultrasound probe, often followed by rapid on-site cytologic evaluation. This webinar discusses the indications and limitations of this technique, appropriate handling of the cytologic specimen, and cytomorphologic diagnoses commonly encountered in this context
