Güliz A. Barkan, MD and Eva M. Wojcik, MD

Presentation date: April 26, 2016; Expires: April 26, 2019
This Cyto-econference provides a review of the morphologic criteria and guidelines for the cytologic diagnosis of urinary tract (UT) specimens. It is based on The Paris System of Reporting UT cytology, an international effort to unify and standardize the reporting terminology of UT cytology. This webinar will address the salient diagnostic criteria and the morphological pitfalls. It will also address ancillary tests and their indications, utilization, and practical integration. Other discussion points will include clinical implications of individual diagnostic categories with the associated percentages of risk of high-grade urothelial carcinoma on follow up, and the expected percentage of each reported category based on the practice settings.

Item Name: The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology
Dorothy L. Rosenthal, MD

Presentation Date: November 25, 2014; Expires: November 25, 2017
Historically, examination of urine for presence of malignant urothelial cells has been successful for High Grade Urothelial Carcinoma (HGUC), but not for Low Grade Urothelial Carcinoma (LGUC).  Indeterminate results are of little clinical significance.  The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology has been developed to emphasize the goal of performing urine examination, i.e., detection of HGUC, and minimizing the detection of LGUC.  Definition of the characteristics of the intermediate category of atypia aims at decreasing that category into a clinically meaningful one.  Criteria for each category have been based on clinical outcomes.
