2018, Jan. 25-27: Liver Pathology Can Be Fun--Really


Jan. 25-27, 2018

17 CMEs / 12 SAMs

Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

Clinical and imaging advances in the management of patients with liver disease have significantly altered the scope of disorders encountered by pathologists, shifting biopsy assessment of fibrosis stage among patients with chronic viral hepatitis or steatosis to unraveling complicated medical issues, hepatic effects of polypharmacy/targeted therapies or tumors of unclear etiology. This course prepares pathologists to evaluate these situations in contemporary practice.

Course Objectives

  • Distinguish the diagnostic features of medication and pathogen-related injury
  • Formulate a differential diagnosis for chronic hepatitis pattern of injury
  • Distinguish hepatocellular carcinoma from its mimics in needle biopsy material
