Cervical Malignancies and Potential Pap Pitfalls

Rachel Conrad, MD

Rosemary Zuna, MD

Due to successful cervical screening programs, malignant Pap tests are decreasing in number in most laboratories. This leads to fewer opportunities for cytotechnologists and cytopathologists to view cervical malignancies on Pap tests and develop familiarity with cytomorphologic features of malignancy. As the recommended interval between Pap tests increases, prompt recognition of these features will become even more essential in providing quality patient care. This webinar reviews our experience with numerous Paps from confirmed cervical malignancies (squamous and glandular) with pertinent clinical, HPV, and histopathologic data. Key tips and challenging cases will also be discussed.

Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology: Opportunities, Limitations and Pitfalls
Sinchita Roy-Chowdhuri, MD, PhD

Molecular diagnostics is increasingly being utilized to help guide targeted therapy in solid organ tumors. Cytopathologists are at the forefront of triaging specimens during rapid on-site evaluation and selecting specimens for ancillary testing. Therefore, it is imperative that practicing cytopathologists stay abreast of up-to-date diagnostic and prognostic ancillary tests utilizing limited cytologic material. This presentation will focus on cytologic substrates for ancillary studies, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each, to help the participants triage and devise optimal strategies for ancillary testing in their own practices.

Interpretation of FNA Material of Lymph Nodes Involved by Lymphoproliferative Disorders

Marino Leon, MD

Selected common and challenging lymphoproliferative disorders involving lymph nodes and encountered in a current cytopathology practice, will be reviewed in this session. Common pitfalls in the diagnostic assessment of these neoplasms will be reviewed integrating clinical presentation, imaging findings, and ancillary testing. The role of the cytopathologist and cytotechnologist in the multidisciplinary team will also be highlighted.

66th Annual Scientific Meeting
Nov 10 – Nov 13 all-day
The American Society of Cytopathology is currently welcoming proposal submissions for presentations during the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting taking place in Washington, DC, November 10-13, 2018.

This year’s educational objectives include:

  • The integration of recent advances in cytopathology with current practice
  • The demonstration of the role of research in expanding the field of cytopathology and optimizing patient care
  • The identification of current best practices in cytopathology and cytotechnology educaiton
  • The creation of a forum for advocacy on behalf of cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, and their patients
