CME/SAMs 0.75

Evaluated: November 27, 2016 by David B. Kaminsky, M.D., FIAC
Available for CME credit through November 26, 2019

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  • Upgrade diagnostic skills with diseases that, collectively, are encountered in about 10% of breast samples and require accurate pathologic classification for appropriate management, especially since they often are difficult to characterize clinically.
  • Understand useful diagnostic criteria for selected breast diseases including the spectrum of spindle cell tumors, tumors with unusual differentiation (i.e. such as adenoid cystic carcinoma or secretory hyperplasia/ carcinoma), mimics of malignancy (such as microglandular adenosis and mucocele like lesion), and reactive/inflammatory processes (e.g. ectasia, infection).
  • Learn more about special stains that are useful in the differential diagnosis of the above lesions and to distinguish them from similar appearing lesions in the differential diagnosis.
