Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Develop an approach to common morphologic patterns seen in soft tissue tumors.
  • Discuss the ancillary diagnostic approach to difficult soft tissue tumors including immunohistochemistry, molecular, and genetic diagnostic tests.
  • Describe the most important diagnostic clues and patterns seen in soft tissue tumors which lead to a specific diagnosis.
  • Explain the controversies regarding diagnostic criteria for Barrett’s esophagus and Barrett’s-related dysplasia.
  • Discuss the effects of contemporary therapy on the pathology and management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Describe the role of the pathologist in helping to manage patients with IBD-related dysplasia and neoplasia.
  • Apply risk stratification criteria for the prognostication of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
  • Discuss and recognize the succinate dehydrogenase-deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumor and understand the clinical significance of this category of GIST.
  • Describe the transcription factors most useful for the identification of primary site location in metastatic carcinomas.
  • Discuss the diagnostic markers for distinguishing hepatocellular carcinoma from metastatic carcinomas to the liver.
  • Apply immunohistochemical markers to determine the primary site for metastatic well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor.
  • Accurately render a diagnosis of non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasms with papillary-like nuclear features and recognize its mimics.
  • Identify tumors with progression to poorly differentiated or anaplastic thyroid carcinoma.
  • Recognize the morphologic spectrum of adrenal cortical carcinoma.
  • Describe the features helpful in establishing a malignant diagnosis of prostate cancer on needle biopsy.
  • Review the morphologic features essential in distinguishing benign mimickers from bladder cancer.
  • Recognize unusual variants of common renal tumors and become familiar with more recently described renal tumors.
  • Appreciate the subtle histomorphologic features that can help to distinguish well-differentiated ductal adenocarcinoma from reactive changes in the pancreas.
  • Appreciate the anatomic and histologic compartments of the ampulla and their significance in the versatility and subclassification of ampullary tumors.
  • Acquire knowledge of new concepts, terminology and histologic grading of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
