About The Meeting
This seminar is designed to provide a practical yet comprehensive review of soft tissue tumor pathology. A pattern-based approach to diagnosis, including an emphasis on differential diagnosis, as well as the use of ancillary diagnostic methods (especially immunohistochemistry) will be discussed.

Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Apply a pattern-based approach to the differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors.
  • Describe the evolution of diagnostic immunohistochemistry for soft tissue tumors.
  • Utilize immunohistochemistry for accurate diagnosis of soft tissue tumors.
  • Order appropriate molecular tests for accurate diagnosis of soft tissue sarcomas.
  • Recognize histologic and genetic subtypes of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Recognize recently described mesenchymal tumors of the head and neck.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of cutaneous spindle cell tumors.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, the leader in continuing medical education since 1975.
