Course Description:
Surgical pathologists, those with subspecialty interest in genitourinary pathology, and pathologists-in-training would benefit from an update that integrates new information on prostate and renal pathology, eliminates practice gaps and improves patient care. Practitioners and trainees will have the opportunity (with adequate time) to discuss challenging cases with more experienced colleagues who have developed expertise in their specific fields.

Target Audience:
Pathologists (surgical, subspecialty and pathologists-in-training) performing intraoperative interpretations would benefit from this broad spectrum array of difficult and controversial ovarian lesion interpreted on frozen section.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize different patterns of ovarian neoplasms appreciated on histologic morphology
  • Perform a diagnosis and differential diagnosis after evaluation of specimen including pertinent clinical history
  • Be able to communicate findings to clinician/oncologic surgeon, even when a definitive diagnosis cannot be made
  • Develop a systematic approach in the diagnosis of prostate and renal cancer
