Cytology of Bone Tumors and Pseudotumors

Yaxia Zhang, MD, PhD

Bone tumors are rare and diagnostically challenging. This case-based webinar will provide basic and advanced information on bone tumor morphology, classification, ancillary testing, biomarkers, and clinicoradiological information to highlight the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic implications of bone tumors. Representative tumors of bone in osseous, cartilaginous, small blue round cell, spindle cell, giant cell rich, and other morphologic categories will be addressed. Differential diagnosis, pertinent ancillary testing, and diagnostic pitfalls will also be discussed. How to perform appropriate on-site evaluation and triage of bone specimens to facilitate an accurate diagnosis will also be discussed. This webinar will provide you with a much better understanding of how to achieve a timely, accurate and specific diagnosis of common and difficulty bone tumors for better patient care.

Non-Salivary Gland Neoplasms and Conditions of Head and Neck

Zahra Maleki, MD

Fine needle aspiration has gained a significant popularity in evaluation of head and neck lesions due to its minimally invasive nature, lack of scar, and the possibility of repeating the procedure. There is also an increase in demand by clinicians and surgeons to receive a definitive diagnosis in order to avoid any unnecessary aggressive procedures. Although metastases are the most common mass lesions in head and neck, a wide variety of both benign and malignant neoplasms including rare conditions, may arise primarily in this anatomic site.This webinar reviews cytomorphology of head and neck mass lesions along with differential diagnosis.
