Proper patient management must involve a multidisciplinary process that integrates morphology, immunophenotyping, genetics, and directed molecular testing. Precise diagnosis, classification, and identification of prognostic indicators of hematologic neoplasms are essential components of that process. At this course, nationally recognized faculty will share their experiences and insights to provide you with a state-of-the-art update on the diagnosis, classification, and prognostication of problematic neoplasms.
You’ll learn practical approaches to real-life challenges. Discussions will include morphologic features and differential diagnoses in lymph nodes, bone marrow, and other tissues. You’ll gain a better understanding of the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis, the most advantageous applications of immunophenotyping and genetic and molecular studies, and more. You will also gain a wealth of information about recent developments in neoplastic hematopathology, along with indispensable guidance for accurate diagnoses of the common and unusual patient conditions that you may encounter.
Following this course, you will be able to:
- Devise an individual practice-based system for efficient and appropriate use of immunophenotyping, cytogenetic, and molecular techniques.
- Apply a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and classification of hematopoietic neoplasms.
- Apply the WHO classification of hematopoietic neoplasms.
- Determine the differential diagnosis for specific lymphoid and myeloid neoplasms, using a multidisciplinary approach.
