Jan. 28-31, 2018

20 CMEs / 15 SAMs

Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

The evolution of gastrointestinal pathology coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsies has revolutionized management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Virtually every part of the tubular gut is now amenable to visualization and sampling. High-resolution cross-sectional imaging routinely detects asymptomatic tumors in patients under surveillance for chronic liver disease. This intensely focused course, presented by a spectacular faculty, will help pathologists generate comprehensive and accurate differential diagnoses for a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders based on limited biopsy material. Take advantage of this intimate mentoring opportunity and upgrade your performance and diagnostic skills.

Course Objectives

  • Recognize and classify dysplasia in the setting of Barrett’s esophagus
  • Distinguish diagnostic features of medication and pathogen-related intestinal injury in the immunocompromised host
  • Formulate a differential diagnosis for sprue-like lesions of the small bowel
  • Distinguish invasive adenocarcinoma from mimics in biopsy material
  • Classify patterns of hepatic injury
