MASTERS OF PATHOLOGY SERIES – LUNG PATHOLOGY

Masters of Pathology Series

A broad approach to key topics in thoracic pathology with special focus on its implications in lung cancer diagnosis and treatment. Includes video microscopy sessions.

Stay Current with the Latest Key Advances

Through engaging lectures, case studies, and virtual microscopy sessions, Masters of Pathology Series – Lung Pathology helps build and translate knowledge into realistic diagnostic scenarios. Course Director Lynette M. Sholl, MD, and her colleagues deliver in-depth coverage of topics like granulomatous diseases, vasculitis, multiple lung tumors, lung transplant pathology, pulmonary vascular pathology, benign mimics of lung cancer, and more. This CME course will help you to better:

– Recognize common, uncommon mediastinal tumors including thymic neoplasms

– Interpret the clinical implications of specific carcinoma diagnoses

– Identify effective diagnostic and predictive biomarkers for NSCLC diagnosis

– Differentiate between reactive and neoplastic proliferations of the lung and pleura

– Understand the relevance of IHC, FISH, molecular tests for diagnosing malignant mesothelioma

– Define appropriate biomarkers to select lung cancer patients for immunotherapy
