Pancreaticobiliary Cytology—Problem  Cases

Judy Pang, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Michigan

EUS-FNAs of pancreatic masses and bile duct brushings are effective modalities in the diagnostic workup of patients with suspected neoplasms. Nonetheless, diagnostically challenging cases are occasionally encountered.  How do we as pathologists communicate our level of concern for neoplasm in our reports when we cannot render a  definitive cytologic diagnosis and how will this affect the patient’s clinical management?  What adjunct testing modalities are available to reconcile indeterminate cytologic interpretations? This webinar will emphasize what pathologists need to include in a report if an indeterminate diagnosis (atypical/suspicious)  is rendered and what the possible clinical implications of that report could be.
